This is one of these sites that are fascinating for engineering geeks, but for "regular people" it's just like standing on a bridge. I was hoping for more background info to make the story come alive a bit more, but I was disappointed. To get the full experience, one must do the studying before the visit.
The Afslutdijk alone is impressing. The watchtower to look at the Sea on both sides is great, but to really get the feeling you have to go downstairs! This little gem of a quite normal sailors restaurant and cafe unfolds its charm but gradually while sitting on a stormy (or sunny) day with a hot chokomelk or coffee and some... 更多
We saw this 'bridge' on the map so we decided to go see what it was. A 20 mile stretch of straight road! They say one side is sea an one side is fresh water as its cut off from each other. In the middle of it is a bridge to the other side and some parking and a stair... 更多

The dyke that turned the Zuiderzee into the IJsselmeer in 1932. The construction started in 1927. It's an easy way to get from Noord-Holland to Friesland. Somewhere in the middle you can stretch your legs. And take the view from both sides of the water. Nice stop.
On the way for Friesland we stopped here with the car, and we could admire this place that is incredible to see. There is a restaurant and a gift shop for the ones that wanna take a break or buy something. I advice to get this stop if you find yourself in this area.
In case you want to get some idea about Dutch Engineering, this is a nice place to visit. I'm missing the onsite explanation, so you need to read about it yourself. Just fun to see, nothing extraordinary, but still worthwhile.
