Oostvaardersplassen Lelystad Experience


08/05 to 03/09


Sunday 8 May 2022 to Saturday 3 September 2022

Join the NieuwLand experience and get to know the Oostvaardersplassen of the Nieuwland National Park in a special way.

The Experience starts at Bataviaplein in Lelystad and then takes you to the Noordersluis with our beautiful Nieuwland Bus. On the bus we surprise you with a VR experience. At the Noordersluis you get on the MS Nieuw Land and the cruise begins on the way and along the Nieuwland National Park. We take you through the Noordersluis over the Lage Dwarsvaart through the Knarsluis. At the Oostvaardersveld you will be met by a guide from Staatsbosbeheer who will take you for a walk through the Oostvaardersplassen (Oostvaardersveld). The walk ends at the visitor center where you have the opportunity to stroll, shop or enjoy the view on the beautiful terrace overlooking the Oostvaardersplassen. On your own, you can walk back to the ship at the Knardijk where you can reminisce about the return journey to the Wortman pumping station at the Noordersluis while enjoying a snack or drink. The Nieuw Land Bus will take you back to the Bataviakwartier.
