The Merlijn has spread her magic for 20 years.
This year, though a year of uncertitude for many of us, is as well a year that must be celebrated, because Merlijn is celebrating its 20th anniversary!! The history of the Merlijn starts way back in 1930, when it was build as a cargo ship with the name "Adelaar" (Eagle). After more then 70 years and several owners along the way, in 2001 the ship began her new career as a cruise ship with the name everyone knows: "Merlijn".

Bike, Barge & Cruise. There is a reason why it starts with "Bike"
Our bikes are a big part of your Bike & Barge Cruise, that's why we want to provide you with the best quality bike possible. The brand is Sensa from the Netherlands. With a super light frame and 27 gears you can easily climb any mountain in Europe, even the Dutch mountains. (this is what we call the wind that can blow in the Netherlands)
Cycling is the best way to experience local life.

Merlijn has the most comprehensive sailing schedule and is also heading to the Blue Danube from 2022 on!
We already have so many routes that the season has become too short to sail them all and now, for the first time in her life, Merlijn is going to sail the Danube. That beautiful blue Danube, as it was described by Johann Strauss Jr. in the year 1867 in the Viennese Waltz he composed.
You can be one of the first guests of Merlijn, cycling along the Danube. We have designed 2 different Danube routes which we sail in both directions, meaning you can choose from 4 tours and even more departures! Have a look at the itinerary by clicking the destinations you like:
