Go to the visitor center to learn the history and how Mother Nature has been tamed (for a while) via a massive engineering feat. Sea water is allowed in to maintain an ecological balance, but high water is held back when massive barriers are lowered....More

The whole project looks simple. However, it was a massive engineering project, especially when it has to deal with the violent North Sea. Definite worth the extra trip to experience this great engineering works.

We visited this attraction by accident. We'd thought we were going to see the futuristic store surge barrier we'd read about. (That's at Maeslantkering and we saw it later - well worth a visit). We watched a fascinating movie about the building of these structures....More
