Amazing engineering

(Guided tour of the Delta Works and free time)

Deltapark Neeltje Jans tells the story of the region´s battle against the tide and the reasons for building the Delta Works. You´ll be joined by an expert guide who will show you around the Delta Works. The tour starts with a film called the Deltafinale, which gives a good impression about how the storm surge barrier was built. There is also an exposition about 2000 years of hydraulic engineering in the Netherlands, followed by a walk to, and along, the storm surge barrier. You´ll get a good idea of just how colossal the barrier is, as well as the power and speed at which the water flows through it. After the tour, you will have time for yourself (and the souvenir shop).
