Heusden is a Meuse / Maas River cruise port and town in Southern Netherlands, with population around 45,000. The town is located between Waalwijk and s-Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch).

Heusden (Holland) river cruise port

The settlement was developed in the early-13th-century around a fortification (castle) that was built and owned by Hertogdom Brabant (Dutchy of Brabant / 1183-1794). After 1357, when the castle passed into Holland, were constructed star-shaped ramparts (defensive walls) and surrounding moats (broad ditches filled with water). The chateau fort was used as a munition depot until 1680, when a bolt of lightning struck it and over 27,000 kg of gunpowder and ammunition exploded, The castle was destroyed and never fully rebuilt. Today remain only fort's outlines (restored in 1987).

As cruise port, Heusden was included in the 2019 schedule of one of world's largest river cruise companies - Uniworld. Next table shows MS River Queenaa ship's 7-day itinerary between homeports Amsterdam and Brussels.
