Conveniently located 30 minutes from Rotterdam in the west of the Netherlands, Papendrecht is a typical Dutch dike town that’s ideally located for holidaymakers and business travellers alike. Thanks to its location at the junction of rivers Beneden Merwede and Noord, Papendrecht is one of the Drechtsteden with a vibrant naval history, which can be explored at the ship-engine museum, SHVP Papendrecht. Visitors to the town will feel right at home in the sleek, comfortable four-star Apollo Hotel Papendrecht.
Get your bearings
Visitors can familiarise themselves with Holland’s charming tulip-dotted landscape from the Waterbus, the main daily ferry service in the Rotterdam-Dordrecht area. Departures go from the World Heritage-listed Kinderdijk, home to iconic windmills dating from the 18th century, just a 15-minute drive from Papendrecht.
Papendrecht is easily explored on two wheels, thanks to a signposted scenic cycle route that cuts a swathe through windswept grasslands and tranquil meadows to the city of Dordrecht. Once there, head to the Dordrecht museum, which is home to works by prominent Dutch master Jan van Goyen, or relax with a drink in one of the picturesque waterside coffee shops and restaurants.
While you’re there
At UNESCO World Heritage site Kinderdijk, just 15 minutes from Papendrecht, visitors can get a glimpse of Holland’s specialist water-management network by way of 19 historic windmills, before stepping aboard hopper ship the Prins Friso for a waterside tour of the area.
