Maassluis is a beautiful city with a rich history. The two close-lying flowing canals that define the cityscape are unique. For centuries, the dike and the locks have occupied an important and strategic position in the water management system of Delfland. The look of the outer dike area of the city is shaped by fishing, traditionally the city's main source of income. Discover historic Maassluis.
