The Delta Works

The Delta works are the best and largest storm barriers in the world. There is a reason why the dams are nicknamed “the eighth wonder of the world”. They were designed after the floods of 1953 and offer protection to the land surrounding the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta. With the Delta Works, the chances of another flood have been reduced to once every 4000 years.

The Biesbosch

Right in my own backyard we can find the Biesbosch.

De Biesbosch National Park is one of the few freshwater tidal areas of the world. Several rivers come together to form a freshwater delta of approximately 8,000 hectares. The nature reserve is subjected to the influence of the tides and has unique flora and fauna. The leisure facilities are set up in such a way that you will have everything you need, and sit back to see nature take its course without disturbance.

Hiking, boating, canoeing, biking, fishing, birdwatching, horseback riding, and swimming are just some of the things you can do in De Biesbosch National Park. There are excursions throughout the year, such as bird walks, bike/boating trips and hiking excursions.

Because i know the area so well, i am going to tell you everything i know and make sure you are never going to forget the beaty of this natural delta.

Everybody’s heard of the Unesco world heritage list, but did you know the Netherlands has Ten items on that list !! 

One of these ten are the world famous Windmills of kinderdijk. The 17th century windmills are build between 1738 and 1740. 
previously there were Drainage mills in the area, of which two remain. These mills have kept the low country of the Alblasserwaard dry, which was ravaged by subsidence and flooding.

Visit these Mills now during a special tour with the Dutch Guide.

The Zaanse schans

The Zaanse Schans is one of the highlights of the Netherlands, just outside Amsterdam.

Be part of a vibrant and stunning living and working community that dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries. It’s packed with wooden windmills, barns, houses and museums and built in the typically Dutch wooden architectural style, relocated here piece by piece since 1961.

The Zaanse Schans will easily fill half a day – there is so much to see, taste, smell and experience! Take a walk through the stunning buildings and the unique peat meadow landscape. Come and watch traditional crafts such as clog- and cheese-making or visit the windmills and traditional buildings.

Take a boat trip, dine in one of the restaurants or explore the shops and boutiques.  I look forward seeing you soon!
