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.

This was a great way to spend the day in Zeeland with kids. Albeit, a little more expensive than I like, but okay for a full day. We played in a water park, went on a boat ride, watched a seal show, learned about the storm of 1953 and the way the deltaworks were built. We even walked through and... More

About 25 of us on this optional tour experienced the Delta Works from the top and from underneath. Our guide was very knowledgeable and spent a great deal of time at each exhibit under the Works. We could then walk on top and see the power of the water passing through. There is a lot of walking on the tour,... More

By car you will not see much. You will have to pay entry fees en high parking prices to visit the works. Nice to see when you are nearby but really not worth it if you need to come from far. Better to see this on pictures.

If you have the chance to rent a car or motorbike than this should be on your list to visit when you are staying in the Netherlands. The Deltaworks of which the Oosterscheldekering is one is one of the great pieces of engineering the Netherlands has to offer. It's a very nice area to drive through (especially by motor). You...
