As mentioned in the section on the River Lek, the moorings at WV De Peiler are a good alternative to the visitors moorings near the lock for a stop at Vianen. There is a friendly reception from the duty harbour master and the facilities are well kept. The large lake offers a tranquil setting for a peaceful evening, although the wash from the regularly passing barges on the river do affect the berths near the entrance quite badly. Unmetered 6A electricity, and water are included in the modest overnight fee, and some 16A supplies are available on request.
It is a 20 minute cycle ride into the town (either via the fields, by turning left at the top of the footbridge, or the more normal route through the gate and along the road, by turning to the right). A key for the gate on a giant wooden fob is provided on free loan. There is a market from 1000-1600 on Wednesdays, or if you fancy something nearer to home, you can visit Boer Bertus, an Eetcafe at the adjacent Campsite Clementie for some honest home cooking (turn right out of the gate).
