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.
