Eastern Scheldt Storm Surge Barrier -Oosterscheldekering
This is without doubt the most impressive storm surge barrier in the Netherlands. It’s a colossal 3 kilometres long and constructed out of 65 gigantic concrete pillars. The barriers are closed during storms, to protect against flooding.

On the artificial island of Neeltje Jans, you’ll find Deltapark Neeltje Jans, which has the most amazing exhibitions about the Delta Works as well as tremendously exciting attractions – it’s sure to blow you away!
