Kanaalweg: Muntgebouw and Park Oog in Al


The Kanaalweg is a street along the Merwede canal. A very nice place along the Kanaalweg which is definitely worth a visit is the point where the Merwede canal and the river the Leidsche Rijn cross. There is a popular swimming place there at the Muntkade and you can also find the Muntgebouw and Park Oog en Al nearby.


The Muntgebouw is the place where the Dutch National Mint was located until April 2020. Currently, the unique and imposing building is home to a congress centre.
