Muiden is a pleasant town in the Netherlands of approximately 4000 people, on the shores of the IJmeer, at the mouth of the Vecht river. The town is known for its yacht harbor and for its historic castle, Muiderslot. Its proximity to Amsterdam - it is just 12 km east of the city centre - makes it a good daytrip for anyone looking to get out of the city.

Get in

By bicycle

It takes about an hour to cycle from central Amsterdam to Muiden.

By train and bus

The fastest way to reach Muiden from Amsterdam is to take the train to Weesp station, and then bus 110. The bus stop is in front of the station, service every half hour, hourly after 20.30, hourly on Sundays. The ride to Muiden takes just 5 minutes.

Connexxion bus 101, from Amsterdam's Amstel Station to Blaricum, also stops on the outskirts of Muiden. Service every half hour.

By car

There are large parking areas on the outskirts of Muiden. It's not worth taking your car into the town itself. There are only two bridges across the river Vecht here, the motorway and a narrow swing bridge: on Sundays the narrow bridge is closed to cars.

Get around

Muiden is quite small, so getting around on foot or bicycle is the only reasonable option.

See

There are essentially three things to see in Muiden: the historic river quayside, the yachts moored there, and above all the Muiderslot, an originally 13th-century castle. Tours of the castle are usually in Dutch only. €7. [1].
