Information on the waterways
Waterways :
Locks and lifting bridges are well maintained; at many, you will be asked to pay a small toll, usually between 4 and 6 €. The yacht harbours which you will find in most towns also charge for overnight stops. Before 16 April and after 16 October some canals are closed entirely and others closed on Sundays. It is essential to check your cruising plans with the base during these periods.
