This Delta Park is situated about 100 km. south of Rotterdam in the province of Zeeland.

More of half of the Netherlands lies below sea level.  In order to keep the Dutch people save the Delta Plan was created.  At Neeltje Jans you can see the movies, but also see the real thing. You can have a look at the 45 meter wide steel doors, they let the tides rush through.
