In NLDelta, the last 600 years have all been about co-existence with water. It is a story which is quintessentially Dutch. A story of living under sea level, of protection against water and of harnessing water to the fullest. This centuries-old co-existence with water has made an indelible mark on the landscape.
NLDelta is the place where the Rhine and the Meuse meet the sea. It is a rich and unique ecosystem and an international crossroads for thousands of fish and birds. The delta is an indispensable link in the migratory routes of birds, providing places for foraging and stopovers, as well as for wintering or breeding. Geese, spoonbills, avocets, godwits and sandwich terns can all be seen here. With a bit of luck you might also espy an osprey or a white-tailed eagle.
NLDelta is the ultimate proof of the ingenuity of the Dutch and the diversity of the nature of the Dutch Delta. Experience the life and the nature of this rich and unique delta.
