    If you want to visit the Kaag you have to go across the Ringvaart with the small ferry from Buitengaat. It's a travel of maybe 1 minute, but remember you go across the a provincial border.

    The ferry can hold 4 normal cars at maximum and some foot passengers and cyclists.

    I recommend to explore the Kaag by foot; a return tickets for a foot pasenger is Euro 0.90.

    The ferry is operated by the Ponto company, located at Julianalaan 1A - 2159 LA Kaag.
