Visitors’ harbour/Motor home site ‘De Zuiderkluft’ in Giethoorn

Visitors’ harbour ‘De Zuiderkluft’ is the first marina to the west of the canal coming from the Beukerssluis lock. You can use a free mooring in the visitors’ harbour, but also at the quay in the Beukers-Steenwijk Canal. In the peak season we ask you to close up, and when necessary, accept a fellow visitor to raft off you.
‘De Zuiderkluft’ also has about 40 motor home sites, located directly and attractively at the harbour.
When you arrive and have found a mooring/pitch, you can pay your harbour fees via the payment terminal, the terminal will issue you a ticket as receipt which you should place in a place clearly visible (from the quay).
The payment terminal can be found in the passage at the side of the harbour office. This is indicated with a sign with the text TICKETS.
You can use the payment terminal not only to pay for your mooring, but also to purchase a MARINE PAYMENT CARD or top up. Take note: The payment terminal accepts debit cards and credit cards for payment (NO coins).
If payment through the payment terminal is problematic, the harbour master will be happy to assist you.



There are enough power connections at the visitors’ harbour and the motor home sites. A payment of € 1.00 (which is deducted from your MARINA PAYMENT CARD) will give you 1 kWh. The electricity connections are fused at 10 Amp.


There are tap water stations at various locations in the harbour and on the motor homes site. A payment of € 0.50 (which is deducted from your marina payment card) gets you approximately 80 litres of water. In connection with Legionella control we ask that you unroll the hose completely from the reel and first rinse it before use.
