This can be a bit out of the way from Amsterdam but if you are looking for a cool day trip this is the place. Its a very long dijk that was built to separate two bodies of water. This is amazing because at the lookout points you can see the North Sea on one side and the Ijselmeer on the other. Lookout for hidden dirt roads that can lead right up to dijks on the North Sea. You can walk right up onto them for a really cool view. There are various stopping points along the way for great pictures and views and a lookout tower in the middle. The lookout tower has a great and cheap souvenir stand and you can eat there too for pretty cheap. It can be VERY windy there and in the winter can be brutally cold but this is one out of the way place that is well worth the journey. Take the time to read how this was constructed as it is a fascinating feat of architecture and imagination. It truly is amazing what they did and how they did it.
