We – the people behind Cruise Port IJmuiden– have quite a lot of experience with cruises and we do know how important it can be to have good and up-to-date information about the ports and cities that will be visited during a cruise. IJmuiden is the second largest cruise port in The Netherlands and has a lot to offer, especially due it’s unique location on the shores of the North Sea but at the same time, next to the very heart of the low lands. Indeed, IJmuiden is the ideal starting point to explore a piece of Holland! Almost all the major tourist attractions and cities in The Netherlands have a website nowadays but sometimes it may be hard to find what you’re looking for, especially if you don’t know your way around (yet) in the low lands. The general idea behind the website is to bring a whole lot of the available information together and to create a real gateway to the low lands. We do hope all this information will help you to get around more easily and to enjoy Cruise Port IJmuiden and surroundings at its fullest!
We do not pretend to know “everything” (on the contrary!) but as we are “locals”, we do know where to go and how to get around in the area. We check the public transportation and all the places mentioned on this website on regular basis as we want to keep all the information on this website “up to date”.
This website is a private, non-profit initiative (without any ties to the authorities, the municipality or the stores mentioned on this site) and is more or less an “endless project” as we keep on changing and updating this website, as well as adding more and more information and links to other interesting websites. Your ideas, comments and suggestions are -of course- more than welcome and highly appreciated; you’ll find our contact information here and our disclaimer here. Also, you can follow us on twitter and facebook.
Wishing you a great stay at Cruise Port IJmuiden, we are already looking forward to meeting you!
