The story of the Netherlands is the story of water. Water as a bitter enemy, water as a source of trade and prosperity. Batavialand brings our fight against water to life - the reclamation and dike construction - but also the voyages of discovery, overseas trade and the specialist knowledge that the Netherlands exports. More than 7,000 years of life on the border of land and water - you can hear, see and feel it in Batavialand!
Wharf and museum at a suitable location
Batavialand is located in an appropriate place: on the Markermeer, in the easily accessible Lelystad. Capital of the province of Flevoland, the largest land reclamation project of all time. Batavialand has an indoor and an outdoor location. Outside you will find the wharf, with the famous replica of the VOC ship Batavia at the jetty. The museum surprises you with maritime exhibitions, presentations and activities for the youngest visitors. Batavialand offers the whole family a fun, educational and interactive day out.
