Sail along with the oldest, still sailing inland barge in the Netherlands! A unique monument with a unique service. The 'Helena' (from 1875) has been restored to its original state after extensive restoration. The Helena is also the only ship with a Rhine patent, which means that she can sail on the Rhine with passengers.
Everyone is invited to help with the sailing of the ship. Operating winches, hoisting sails and even steering. Or have a nice drink on deck, enjoying the rippling water. Nothing is necessary and (almost) everything is allowed! Of course the skipper makes sure that everything happens safely and correctly. Meanwhile, the ship's cook serves the most delicious dishes from his galley.
Plenty of possibilities
Are you looking for an active day out, an inspiring meeting location, a fun teambuilding activity or even a wedding at an authentic location? Whatever you want, you can do it on board the Helena!
