How do the Dutch protect themselves against floods?

The Netherlands is partially under sea-level. How come that the last big flooding was in 1953? What did the Netherlands do to prevent flooding after that? Learn more about it by watching this short video.
Want to see the deltaworks as Neeltje Jan’s Island on your bike trip? Or the major dykes such as Afsluitdijk of Houtribdijk? No problem!

Also, did you know that when cycling our tour “Holland and Bruges” you will pass by these deltaworks too? They are in the province Zeeland (Sea-land), it is not hard to figure out why the province is called this way..
