Pancake boat tour Rotterdam



Discover Rotterdam with a full stomach!

The Pancake boat Rotterdam is a fun dining and sightseeing attraction, and is great for families with kids. And don't forget to bring your grandparents! During the river cruise you can discover the river Maas and the harbour of Rotterdam. This large river boat offers a perfect homely setting for an all-you-can-eat meal of delicious pancakes! Not a good idea if you're on a diet...

Great views on the river Maas

The pancake boat is a classic river cruise boat, with two large decks and large windows with an excellent view on the Rotterdam harbour.. The boat is beautifully upholstered with wood paneling and wooden floors. It doesn't matter what table you choose, you will always have a great view! In summer the outdoor top deck is the place to feel the fresh wind in you face, while you' re having dinner.

Experience Rotterdam while eating pancakes

The pancake boat cruises along the Maas river and you'll see some great landmarks of Rotterdam, including the Veerhaven, the park, the Euromast, the museum steamer ss Rotterdam, the Wilhelmina pier with Hotel New York, the majestic Erasmus Bridge and the Feyenoord Stadium. During some tours not only pancakes are on the menu, but also a buffet with chicken, beef and vegetables. The pancakes are served with topings such as ham, cheese, fruit, marmelade or chocolate sprinkles. Kids just love the dessert ice cream!

" Five stars if you're family with children and looking for good food and a chance to let the kids play with other kids on a boat (with a playground for them). Four stars if you're looking for a romantic quite cruise.."

" Had no idea things like this existed! They serve 3 kinds of pancakes, plain, with apple and with bacon. Then there is a range of toppings. You get to see a large part of Rotterdam from the water which is a nice bonus. Amazing experience and was so stuffed afterwards! "

" A great place to take the kids for pancakes and play for an afternoon while visiting Rotterdam especially on rainy days or in the colder months."

Jonah Ptak

" I wholeheartedly recommend taking the longer 2.5 hour ride. MUCH better pancake toppings, more time to eat yourself sick, and a little bit more sights to behold. NOTE: Be wary of sitting close to the ball pit! Chaos."
