The deltaworks in itself are quite impressive, but the location of this attraction is completely off according to the map!! We lost an entire hour, because we followed the map given here, but the deltaworks are actually around the Deltapark Neeltje Jans.

Impressive construction build to win the struggle against the sea. Worthwhile seeing especially on a stormy day.

We vacationed there my whole childhood and as a grown up I brought my husband and my kids there too. They loved it. The wild ponies in the dunes, pick nicking, hours of bike riding, beach walks, the seafood and The pancake mill.

If you are interested in real Dutch craftsmanship, you have to visit this place. The Deltawerken are a national treasure and a real architectural dream for engineers. The knowledge of this Dutch technology has been sold to numerous countries in the world to protect their main land of flooding.

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

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!
