This was the first time in this part of the Netherlands, so we made sure that we took in the sites of this unique & iconic dyking system. Most people will not realize what is involved with designing & building a system that will save lives & property. Remember the disaster of the 1950's!

It looks impressive as you pass by, but we saw no real reason to spend a lot of time here. The weather was great so there wasn't any activity! Better to stop by on a stormy day I guess...

Even after living in Zeeland for 14 years we had never been to the Deltawerken. So when we were on holiday in 2010 we made the trip with the kids, aged 7 and 4. It is an interesting attraction with the little waterpark, museum and the Deltawerken itself.

The Delta Works are a feat of engineering. Cycle across to get the full experience. The cycle path is wide and there are plenty of opportunities to stop and take in the technology.

Deltawerken is all about the struggle against the water. Zeeland lies under sea level and in former days (1953) the water destroyed many lives. Deltawerken is top of the bill knowledge and innovation. There are several sites to watch. Neeltje Jans is the most known, but Zeelandbrug (Zierikzee) and Maeslantkering (Rozenburg) are worthwhile too.

Was taken by bus to see this so I did not get real close, however, it is so large that you get the idea even if you don't get real close. We did drive over it, so we did get to see it and could see it was a large project to do. The Dutch must be the best at... More

Everytime I cross this Delta Works, I always ask my self " How did they do it, stopping the wild water of the North Sea and making this construction?". Well, it's worth seeing if you like engineering. You don't need to pay the entrance if you only want to see the dam. Take the opposite direction of the Deltapark. Free... More

Oosterschelde Dam by car is a unique experience. There are parking lots to take a look on the North Sea beach areas. Many travellers during summer time, it's the place where Dutch vacationers go to. Vast landscape. Weather conditions can be harsh sometimes.

I was hesitant to do this optional tour from our river cruise company, but it was really interesting - even if you are not an engineer. Dated but informative movie in the beginning, then we had a good guide take us through the whole operation.
