About payment terminal Gravestenenbrug
The payment terminal is located next to the 1950 Gravesteen Bridge. This double steel drawbridge is for pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Next to the bridge is a small house that once served as the smallest museum in the Netherlands. This museum was run by artist Spiering. He made a nod to Teylers Museum, with its giant classical sculpture group atop the roof, by placing his own oversized classic "The Foot of Mercury" on the roof. The little museum no longer exists and now serves as a shower stall for water recreationists and inland boaters.

You may moor in Haarlem for up to three hours free of charge at one of the transient moorings. After the first three hours, you pay for your stay. If you pay for your stay, you do not have to pay bridge fees. It is not possible to reserve a passerby berth. The length of the vessel determines the rate.
