New Land Experience Oostvaardersplassen – Lelystad


20/06 tot June 2024

Join the Nieuw Land Experience and get to know the Oostvaardersplassen of Nieuw Land National Park by bus, boat and on foot.

Join the Nieuw Land Experience and discover the Oostvaardersplassen and the Nieuw Land National Park By land, at sea and virtually by air! We will pick you up at the bus stop in the Bataviahaven in Lelystad and then take you with the Nieuw Land bus across the Oostvaardersdijk to the historic working island of Lelystad. You pass Gemaal Wortman and the Noordersluis and you hear more about the work island houses on the work island. The guide on the bus takes you on a journey through the reclamation of Flevoland: New Land on the seabed. In a surprising VR film you fly virtually over the Oostvaardersplassen.

The bus will take you further to the visitor center of the Oostvaardersplassen. After a short sanitary stop at the visitor center, where there is some time to shop and enjoy the view of the Oostvaardersplassen, you will be met by the guide from Staatsbosbeheer. The guide takes you for a walk (approx. 1.5 – 2 hours) through the Oostvaardersplassen (Oostvaardersveld). The walk ends at the Knarsluis, where ms Nieuw Land is located. On board there is an opportunity to eat and drink something. Along the way, the education guide tells the story of Nieuw Land on the seabed and you can visit the exhibition on this subject for free in the captains room. Historical books and documents about the reclamation of the Zuiderzee are available for inspection here.

The cruise ends spectacularly with the passage through the Noordersluis with a drop of no less than 6 meters. Ms Nieuw Land moors at the jetty of Voc ship De Batavia at Batavialand in the Bataviakwartier.
