  • The wouda gemaal is a very interesting unesco site. It is a great outing. The tour is very interesting; also a very nice visitor center. Cost is vey low (only 8 euro).  more »
  • Definitely worth a visit, very nicely set up to be quite a lot of fun but also to get useful information. Not only for adults but also for children in a fun playful way. There are good guided tours with fun facts and information. Above all, very nice to see this pumping station working there. A must for anyone who wants to do some fun in Lemmer.

  • Simply great! The place is spectacular for itself, to start with. There is an interactive section (unfortunately the explanations are only in Dutch, but you can “guess” a lot) where you can also take pictures of yourself as the old director of the plant or as a worker… funny! You can also watch a short, informative and at the same time entertaining movie. We found a lovely guide (a volunteer, I’m so sorry I forgot to ask his name because he is definitely worth a mention) who explained everything in German for us. The right address for lovers of (old) technology and industrial monuments!
  • 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.
