  • Friendly staff willing to answer all our questions
  • Outstanding example of technical monument.... Still in use! You can't see pomps powered by steam working every day... But from time to time (Few times a year). But except this is unbelievable to touch all of these unusual machines.
  • You would hardly notice it from the road but this building has the largest steam powered pumping station in the world. The most incredible thing is that it's still in operation. To see the inside, you'll need to take a tour. They leave regularly from the modern visitors centre which has an excellent move and displays for while you wait. It doesn't take too long to see everything inside the main building but the guide will be able to answer your questions. I was on my own so was able to have a good chat about how it all worked. This is a little out of the way of most other tourist attractions but well worth the visit if you are nearby.
  • Entrance 8.-€. I demand for machines that run and not a poorly made film. For a UNESCO World Heritage site is a travesty. Films was also prohibited. I got this after I paid the admission but said. Outside but no signs to see. A bunch of machines not in operation are far too expensive. Never again!!! Dumbing people down.

  • Great piece of culture. Too bad the Frisian people again do so chauvinistic about this with ' their ' own dialect. Why language? It is beautifully created by the hard workers of the time. So much less machines at their disposal but yet again a beautiful building. Hats off.
