Botterdagen & Open Monument Day Elburg 2023

07 - 9 Sep 2023

Every year, during the Open Monuments/Botterdagen in the second weekend of September; this year on September 7, 8 and 9, 2023, the Elburger harbor goes back in time. Modern ships make way for almost the entire botter fleet from the Netherlands. Some fifty monumental wooden flat-bottomed boats will prepare for the now famous "Bedrijvenwedstrijd", the largest botter event in the Netherlands.

Enjoy music, smoked eel, take a botter trip and visit a monument, come shopping at the brocante market in town. No one has to be bored during the annual Open Monument Day and Botterdagen Elburg. Will you also come to Elburg the second weekend of September?

Program will follow later. Keep an eye on the event website.
