Tucked in the southwestern corner of the Netherland, The Delta Works are listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.

The sum of the Delta Works make The Netherlands the best protected delta in the world. Explore its outstanding water management constructions on this scenic route.

The road encompasses spectacular views of 13 impressive Delta Works. In the heart of National Park Oosterschelde it is the majestic stormsurge barrier “Oosterscheldekering” and it’s Delta Park “Neeltje Jans” that dominate, but also keep an eye out for porpoise in the water! On this road trip, the majority of time you will be surrounded by water. But in this province of Zeeland the road also sweeps though picturesque villages worth a visit. Take in the ever-changing views of the surrounding water and learn more about the Dutch water defense.
