Discover the struggle and the close relationship of the Dutch with water in Batavialand and on the former island of Schokland (Unesco World Heritage). Start in Batavialand by watching the film about the reclamation of Flevoland. Walk through the museum and discover how to create a polder / new land. Rent a bicycle on Schokland. This is how you experience the story of the former island: After centuries of conflict with the water, the island was evacuated in 1859. The residents were moved elsewhere. It was not until 1942 that Schokland was completely surrounded by land. You can still recognize that it was an island: because of the old harbor, the light keeper's house, the lighthouse and the little church on Schokland.
