Experience how the water has shaped our country between the Woudagemaal (steam-driven pumping station) and the Afsluitdijk. Water is  the designer of our country. Let the story of land and water inspire you. Marvel at the impact of the pumping station on the landscape. This is also  true for the Afsluitdijk. Here, the survival of the Dutch in the Delta, through  the centuries and in view of the future of climate change and sea-level rise, is at the forefront. The dike has made the Netherlands safer and has made it possible to recover additional land. It is extraordinary how you can still see this today.
