I live near the Deltawerken in the Oosterschelde and often take guests there, even if it is just for a brief visit. It is always impressive and a visit to the museum that is part of it adds to the experience.

The Oosterscheldedam is simply a unique structure to keep out the violent seas, while letting tranquil seas pass. When I was younger this was sometimes referred to as the 8th wonder of the world. If you want to see things that are particular to the Netherlands, the Deltawerken should be on your list. Visit Deltapark Neeltje Jans if you want... More

Very beautiful place, near you can do the photos. The cafe is nice. Self-service. VERY chip. And a lot of sea-food. If it's sunny you can do the walking

We planned to stop by - take the tour and see the movies in the center. It was well worth it - and you must leave some time to see the beach and the wind surfers and the windmills. If you do go there is a beach that has a nice wind protected snack bar in the beach - which... More

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.
