Archeologues have found foundations from buildings that belonged to farmers in the Iron-age.A lot of pottery tells us that the Romains lived, worked and staid for a long and intensive time around Maasland.The year 275 shows that the buildings and...

  • Beautiful Mill

    Maasland was a kingdom in the old days. Later they gave it in rental to lords and sirs. Maasland was very wet and a kid of swampy. They started to dry ground and build a farmyard on it. This was not as big as Maasland is now, but it went all the way to the river in Vlaardingen (which was called Sciplede in 1083 and now " De Vlaardingse Vaart".

    This place is old, till 1874 the heads of the community had sittings and meetings here.
    Cause there was no town hall. So you could also marrie here and they kept all the dosiers here.
    When we were there it was closed. But i had a peek through the window and it looked like a nice place to stay (also for diners and snacks)

    Dress Code: Come as you are !

    Maasland is a very small town and the center is full of water. I dont know your parking but mine near water is always different then just a nice parking spot far away from water.
    Beside that if you come on bike you get that historic feeling of being back in time!

    This bike isnt used for a long time.....spotted it infront of a little house near the water.

    Most people in the south of holland are used to water. They live near the beach, polder, river or lake. We are not yet the Venetie of the Netherlands, but we are used to water.
    Living near or on the water is something more Dutch would like. This family is lucky to have a house near the water.
    Most of the Dutch families have boats or canoes of their own, so explore the waterways.

    Just a house !

Maasland Tourist Traps

    by Umfufu Written May 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you need a quiet day with not a lot of noise and other tourists...you should go to Maasland.

    Unique Suggestions: Make sure you can go when you want and that you have an other plan in mind. You have seen Maasland in about 4 hours (And that is when you go and see ALL of Maasland !)

    Fun Alternatives: Go there for half-a-day and then visite Hoek van Holland or the Maesland Kering (see my travelogues) or Rotterdam, to have some entertainment.

    Just kidding with the rafting. But you can canoe through Maasland. Nearby there is a place where you can rent canoes and in the Westland is a lot of water. (In the old day the farmers used the water to bring the vegetables to the clients and later to the auctions).

    Equipment: You need your swimmsuit and a canoe !
