Galderse Meren lakes

The recreational season is from 1 April until 30 September. As well as the rules applicable to parking and recreation, the guidelines issued by the RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) must also be taken into account.

You can request information about the current number of visitors to the lakes via WhatsApp. Send the word 'update' to: 06 11 70 90 15.  If the situation remains unchanged, when you send a subsequent Whats App message, you will not receive a response.

The Galderse Meren lakes are open to visitors, however

  • Avoid crowds and give one another space.
  • Maintain a distance!
  • Make sure that you can always remain at a 1.5-metre distance (2 arms' length) from other people. If that isn't possible, go elsewhere. 
  • The maximum number of visitors will be reached sooner due to the 1,5 metre measure. The access roads to the Galderse Meren will therefore be closed sooner.
  • If too many people are present at the same time in public spaces, the municipality can enforce this.

Rules in relation to recreation 

  • Nude recreation is only permitted at the north side of the Galderse Meren lakes.
  • No dogs or horses are permitted during the recreation season.
  • Barbecues and open fires are not permitted.
  • Motorised watercraft are not permitted.
  • Recreation at the Noordplas nature reserve (to the north of the A58) is not permitted. Offenders will receive a fine.

  • Parking is only permitted in car parks P1 to P6 (1,300 spaces).
  • 'No stopping' signs are in force along the public roads. Drivers of incorrectly parked vehicles and parked cars that cause an obstruction will be fined and the cars may be towed away.
  • Short-stay parking is available on the Moerstraat/Rijsbergsebaan intersection (maximum 15 minutes).
