Visiting Brielle

Fancy visiting the fortress town of Brielle? We welcome you and gladly throw open the gates!

Below, you'll find all kinds of practical information to make your visit to Brielle as pleasant as possible. 

Brielle can be easily reached by public transport. From Rotterdam, you take the metro to Spijkenisse and change to bus number 103 to Brielle. To go straight to the town centre, get off at either 'Nieuwland' or 'Centrum'.

Route planner


You can park free in Brielle, Vierpolders and Zwartewaal. Brielle has a large car park just outside the fortifications, at Thoelaverweg. From this car park, it's a short walk through the town gate into the stronghold. Bear in mind: park at the back of the car park, not next to Jumbo, so that its customers can park close to the supermarket.

Inside the town walls, parking is also free. But parking there is restricted to the parking bays and some of them (the blue zone) restrict parking to a maximum of two hours. You need a blue parking disc, which you can buy at Hema on the Turfkade.

The Geuzenveer

The Geuzenveer is the name of the pedestrian/cyclist ferry that has kept Brielle and Rozenburg connected for decades now. The ferry sails between Rochus Meeuwiszoonweg on the south side of Brielse Meer and the Brielse Veerweg 3 on the north side (points 26 and 27 on the cycle network routes). Watersportcentrum Brielle can also be found here, in the middle of the north shore.

The Geuzenveer sails from April to October. This fun ferry crossing costs €1.80 for adults and €1.20 for children under fourteen. The fare includes a bicycle or moped. In principle, the ferry will sail as soon a passengers arrive at one of the jetties. See: www.geuzenveer.nl

By boat

There are a number of marinas in and around Brielle for the odd overnight stay with the boat or for a permanent berth. Many of them are within walking distance of the town centre. That makes it easy to do a bit of shopping or enjoy the lively stronghold with its many historic buildings.
To arrange an overnight stay in the harbour inside the Brielse ramparts, get in touch with the harbour master: 06-53136235.
