Around park: 20km

The Deltapark Neeltje Jans lies at the foot of the largest storm surge barrier in the world. Our guests even come from Russia, China and America. That is why the Delta Works are known in the entire world. The Delta Works have been built to protect the Netherlands against  the water. The Netherlands is located more than half below sea level and it is therefore vitally important to protect our inhabitants well against the water. In 1953 there was a major flood disaster that cost many people their life. In the Netherlands we have agreed that this should not happen again. The result is that the Delta Works can close all connections with the sea if necessary. The chance that a part of the Netherlands is flooded is now less than 1 x per 4,000 years.

For guests there are exhibitions, guided tours and films in the Deltapark Neeltje Jans that give a good impression of these special Delta Works. The park is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm; From 1 November to 1 April, it is only open in the weekends.
