Netherlands Delta Works

Jump to last reply

Named one of the 7 wonders of the modern world, we are considering visiting this area during our upcoming visit to the Netherlands. We are having a tough time finding information on exactly where to go and if this trip will be worthwhile for us as part of a day trip from Amsterdam to the area of the Hague and Delft (we will have a rental car)

It appears that Neeltje Jans is probably not worth the trip.

Can anyone provide more details though about the Maeslant barrier (Maeslantkering), http://www.keringhuis.nl/index.php?id=37. Specifically,
1) Is this worth the trip to see it?
2) What is in the visitor center?
3) How are the English-speaking tours (they are offered once daily) and would it worthwhile for a family of four with a 12 and 15 year old?
4) Any other tips?

Any other recommendation(s) on the best way to appreciate this engineering marvel (the entire Delta Works project)l with our two teens?

Thanks!

Jeff
