      The first three hours of the picturesque Middelburg, Netherlands, tour starts with a walking exploration around the Delta Works. More than half of the Netherlands lies below sea level and The Delta Works were built to keep everyone safe and to prevent a recurrence of the 1953 flood disaster. The Delta Works are the series of dams, dykes, storm barriers, waterways and locks along the Netherlands coastline. They help to keep the Netherlands from flooding excessively and are very beautifully designed. They are truly a wonder of the modern engineering world.  Exhibitions, films and a visit to the storm surge barrier itself will give you an overall impression of the stupendous power of water. People come to view the storm surge barrier from all over the world. 

      Conclude your day as you enjoy a scenic ride through the countryside of Holland. Windmills, fields, cattle and quaint little villages dot the landscape and you will certainly want to bring your camera to capture the sights.

      Its Flooding!

      Two-thirds of the Netherlands is prone to flooding, which is why the Delta Works were constructed. There is a famous myth that a boy named Hans Brinker stuck a finger in a dyke, and, therefore, saved an area from flooding. This did not happen; of course, but was part of a story written by American author, Mary Mapes Dodge. There is a statue of the fictional character in Spaarndam.
