During a tour, one of our professional guides will tell you everything you want to know about flood risk management in the Netherlands, from the 1953 flood disaster to the Delta works and the latest developments. Outside, by the side of the imposing Maeslant storm surge barrier, you will discover exactly how this barrier works.
Anyone is welcome to join our customised tours. We have tours for primary and secondary schools, students, personnel outings, family days and children’s parties, as well as special technical tours or foreign language tours.
