The village lies on the capricious twists of the river Amstel. In the summer many boats moor in the harbor of Uithoorn. At the dock you will find several restaurants, shops and the weekly market on Wednesday.
On the banks of the Amstel River in the Old Village of Uithoorn are berths for pleasure boats available. These places can not be reserved.
For water recreation, during the boating season (April to October), a public shower and toilet facilities are available at the property Koningin Julianalaan 54A. During the boating season, this facility is open from 07:00 to 23:00.
