We in Lelystad are proud of our history and proud of the formation of our polder. Batavialand offers both small and large visitors to the Bataviakwartier a journey of discovery through our (inter)national history. A history that has been shaped by life on the border of land and water. Water as a bitter enemy, but also as a source of trade and prosperity. Batavialand brings to life our struggle against water - the land reclamation and dike construction - but also the voyages of discovery, the overseas trade and the specialist knowledge that the Netherlands exports. Where Michiel de Ruyter and Cornelis Lely meet logically as symbols for the foundation of Dutch society and culture.
With a trip to the interactive museum Batavialand you will learn more about 7,000 years of life on the border of land and water, while the children have fun with a spectacular voyage of discovery. Find out how the sea influenced the lives of ancient humans, explorers and sailors. At the outdoor location, the wharf, you will find many more activities for the whole family.

Beach & The squatting man
Water sports are alive in Lelystad! And what better place for kitesurfing than on a new beach, along a beautiful view of our iconic Exposure and the Houtrib locks on the Markermeer! In recent years, the Province of Flevoland, together with Rijkswaterstaat, a group of enthusiastic kite surfers from the (now) Hoekipa Dijk foundation, local wind and kite surfers and other stakeholders, have worked hard on the realization of a 400 meter long beach intended for small water sports.
Next to this beach is a huge crouching iron man. This 26 meter high steel giant peers eternally from the Bataviahaven towards the Markermeer, a fine example of technology. With his appearance he lures you from afar. He seems to move into another dimension with the ever-changing Dutch skies as a backdrop. Does he also raise questions with you? Do pay him a visit, but know that he will let you go without answering your questions.
