Booking information Wikkelboat

Wikkelboat: Tiny house on the water

Wikkelboats are tiny houseboats that are multifunctional and sustainable. On a Wikkelboat you can relax, spend the night, but you can also work or have meetings there. Experience how a tiny houseboat, despite or perhaps thanks to the limited space, inspires you to think differently about living and the amount of necessary stuff.
