3. Histouric harbours

In the Middle Ages Dordrecht developed, due to its strategic location on several wide rivers, itself into a prominent trading centre for wine, wood, sugar and grain. The historic harbour area is where all the trading took place, which nowadays operates as an idyllic berth for pleasure yachts, old canal barges and steam boats. A stroll through this area will show Dordrecht’s history and provide some mouth dropping views.
