Review of Afsluitdijk

Afsluitdijk
Ranked #1 of 6 things to do in Den Oever
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 May 2013 via mobile

When I went there, the weather was fine. So, I could see long distance from the monument. It costs 8 euros from Alkmaar station. I could buy
a ticket from the driver. And the driver told me where I got off.

Great experience and there is even a place to park your car and enjoy the dike from a vantage point. The descriptions were fun and informative. Make sure to stop by if you're on your way through the region - there is even a bus stop at the middle of the dike where the visitors centre is.

The Dutches are known for their water management, but the Afsluitdijk beat's it all.
A 33 km dyke constructed in the early 50's, closing a piece of the sea. And at the same time connecting the provinces of Friesland and Noord Holland.
Stop at the monument, which is the place where the builders met, building the dyke from both ends. Climb the tower and enjoy a great view over both the North Sea and the newly created lake: IJsselmeer.

It is amazing to note that this is a 33 kilometer road connecting the provinces Noord Holland and Friesland. This could mean that this was a bay or an open sea before and now it is closed to become a lake at one side and is still a sea at the there side.

In between the long stretch of the Afsluitdijk, there is a rest place for the tourist and locals to view. Information about the famous engineer/initiator is erected. Restaurants and viewing deck are provided and an over pass to reach to the other side of the road.

An outstanding accomplishment. Amazing. See it for yourself.
