Delta Works Tour

Private tour in Amsterdam

Tour Price : 560-880 euro per trip Duration : full day Languages: English, German, Dutch

Dutch history since medieval times represents a story of an enormous engineering undertaking that primarily served two purposes – to claim more land from the sea and prevent floods . That’s why the Netherlands can be considered as one of the most experienced countries in terms of water engineering and large scale land design, which sometimes resembles art. And with this private tour in Holland you will get the chance to admire the immense body of work undertaken by the Dutch to create one of the most fruitful pieces of land below sea level

This tour primarily targets the Delta Works complex, which represents the latest engineering development used to ward off the water from flooding the lower areas beneath it. It doesn’t simply cut off water from the land, as it would be devastating for the entire region in terms of ecology. Instead it implies an automated system of floodgates that are closed once the water level reaches a critical point. It is a very technological structure and will be very peculiar for those of you interested in engineering and tech in general.

I will be glad to explain and show you how this enormous system works and which parts of the country it protects against devastating floods that would otherwise cover a large part of the Netherlands with water.
