Manage the locks and become a lockkeeper for a few minutes. Get carried away on various ships across the North Sea canal. Discover a great variety of interesting jobs in the harbour region .

For only € 5,00 a person our guide takes you with him in his story about the techniques used for the building of our new “frontdoor”. And when all your questions have been answered, you can go upstairs to enjoy the view. A drink in our restaurant is included.

Besides all that SHIP is a unique location for business meetings, presentations or a family get togethers, where you can enjoy the view whilst having lunch or just a good cup of coffee.
