Water Castles and Water Management Tour

Private tour in Amsterdam

Tour Price : 560-880 euro Duration : full day Languages: English, German, Dutch

The nature and history of the Netherlands are tightly intertwined with the history of winning land from the sea. And there are many places in the western and northern parts of the country which used to be flooded either by sea or rivers, but now serve as agricultural lands or even settlements. With this special private tour in Holland you’ll see for yourself how the Dutch were steadily taking more and more land despite the constant threat of the waters and how water management became a true art and engineering specialty in this low lying country. 

This tour isn’t just about seeing and learning how people used to reclaim more land and defending themselves against sea and rivers and what engineering undertakings they’ve accomplished to achieve their goals. It’s also about admiring the beauty of the Dutch river landscapes with the Loevestein and Ammerzoden watercastles.This tour also includes the option of visiting the remarkable Biesbosch National Park and the Noordwaard polder where new room for the river is created and the town of Dordrecht, which is considered to be the oldest settlement in the western part of the Netherlands
