The harbour of water sports association Onklaar Anker is located at "De Nieuwe Meer" on the edge of Amsterdam in a beautiful nature reserve called 'Oeverlanden'.

We have a beautiful view of 'De Nieuwe Meer' from our harbour. In addition, we are sheltered from the elements. There is a small clubhouse in which showers, toilets and a laundromat are located. During the summer season the cafeteria is opened every Saturday and there is an opportunity to chat, have a bite to eat or have a drink.

Our harbour is located at one of the most beautiful spots of Amsterdam directly at the Oeverlanden. In recent years, the area around 'De Nieuwe Meer' has been developed into a stunning recreational area for young and old.

On the other side of the Lake is the Amsterdamse Bos (the forest) where you can have lovely walks and pleasant bike rides. In the summertime there will be a small ferry between the Oeverlanden and the Amsterdamse Bos. This will allow you to quickly travel between these two lovely areas and explore.

In addition, you will be able to explore the rest of Amsterdam. Amsterdam-Zuid and Amsterdam-West are only a short bicycle ride away!
