    This dam which is also highway is a must for a road-trip managed to the Netherlands. 32 km long, it separates the inner sea of freshwater and the North Sea.

    Afsluidijk is a mega construction ( 32km long) causeway that the Netherlands should be proud of. It's very interesting to see that one side is a sea and the other side is a lake. Visiting the monument...  more »

    After visiting the nearby island of Texel, before flying back to Italy I decided to take the road that runs on very long Afsluitdijk dam. Truly impressive. Drive between the North Sea and one that was turned into a large lake, the Ijsselmeer.

    Fantastic place. Rally enjoyed it. The sun was shining but the wind was strong. Dutch showed again they are best at maintaining the SEA. The view is spectacular, So was the drive. Spend some quality time & really worth to pay a visit. :)

    Impressive location with a beautiful view. Even though you can't apprehend how big the project was, especially for the time it was built in, you still feel the giant leap for the dutch resonating in the air. This place breathes the dutch history and capabilities. Too bad there's a busy road, but then again, that was one of the purposes.

    A great achievement in Dutch history. There is 1 good place to see and discover the history of the Afsluitdijk (The tower). Also a good spot to make some nice pictures

    Lovely, beautiful and scenic. With lots of harmless mosquitoes during summer but an awesome sight to behold.

    The place is not so well taken care of, nevertheless its an impressive engineering piece of work and a good view from the tower. it deserves the visit.
