The Vliet Canal

The Vliet Canal: a popular event location

Vliet Huygenskwartier

Huygenskwartier Voorburg is located alongside the Vliet Canal. In the summer months, the waterside terraces are a popular port of call for lunch, dinner or a drink in the sun.

Annual party on the water: the Vlietdagen

The Vlietdagen (Vliet Days) hit town every September. The action extends beyond the Vliet Canal itself, as a special programme is also organised in the shopping streets.

The Vliet Canal also forms the backdrop for another popular annual event: the arrival of St Nicholas in November.
