About this ship: Gandalf

The Gandalf is an enchanting small passenger barge that can accommodate up to 20 passengers. Owned and operated by skipper Hans Petrus, this popular ship sails under the Dutch flag and has been drifting through the canals and waterways of Belgium and the Netherlands for many years.

The Gandalf has a total of ten twin cabins (10 m² – 108 sq.ft.) with two single beds in each. In two of the cabins, there is an option to sleep three by including a bunk bed (on request). The bathrooms in all the cabins have been recently renovated and include showers, basins and toilets. The cabins all have central heating, ventilation and fully functioning windows. Hair dryers are available on request.

On the upper deck, you’ll find a large, cozy lounge which includes a bar, dining area and Wi-Fi. The Gandalf also has two sundecks with tables, chairs and sitting areas that make for the perfect spot to have a drink and enjoy the abundance of natural beauty as you drift toward your next destination.

Our guests love the fact that the Gandalf is largely powered by a double-roof of solar panels, both because it lessens the environmental footprint of the ship, and because it means the generator hardly needs to be used to power the ship, making the evenings still and quiet on board.
