  • After our stay in Leeuwarden have we on the trip home this impressive pumping station visited. After a cup of coffee in the café we got with a group of other visitors to see a beautiful three-dimensional film in the cinema. Then we were around and in the pumping station shown around by an enthusiastic and very knowledgeable tour guide. He turned out to be an old m Abdullah who had great knowledge of engineering. His explanation went us-as linkerhandjes-often ' above the pet '. With a proud feeling about the well organised Frisian water management we are home.

  • 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.
  • An interesting super visit. In addition, we were fortunate to be accompanied by a French-speaking guide. It is surprising that the site attracts more visitors.

  • Recommended well maintained museum and with moments also in use. Gives everyone a good picture how innovative the Frisians 😉 How are you with water.
