Following the 1953 disaster, the Delta Works were constructed consisting of several moveable barriers, locks and dams. The Delta Works lie within the water-themed Delta Park Neeltje Jans where exhibitions and films will give you an idea of the stupendous power of water.


In FutureLand you will experience the development of the newest port area of Rotterdam with your own eyes. Maasvlakte 2 will not only show you the most modern container terminals and largest seagoing vessels in the world, you will also see the latest offshore developments.

Your students will spend the afternoon on a visit to Rotterdam Harbour where they can take a 75-minute cruise and observe the gigantic throughput facilities and redevelopments.

No other flood defence in the world has larger movable parts than the Maeslant barrier. This Delta work can handle a tidal wave of 5 m above sea level. The Maeslantkering is located in the Nieuwe Waterweg near Hoek van Holland and was built between 1991 and 1997. The Maeslant barrier is a barrier in front of it, which means that it absorbs the first blows at high tide from the sea. With this, the storm surge barrier protects the inhabitants of South Holland.

A full day in Amsterdam allows several study and leisure opportunities. The Damrak main square is an ideal location to complete various provided activity sheets such as environmental quality analysis. Groups can make the walk to the Eastern Docks area to carry out an urban renewal activity, with opportunities to conduct pedestrian counts en route.

This day will provide the opportunity to dip into many areas of students’ overall curriculum. Visit Anne Frank’s house, the Van Gogh Museum, NEMO Science Museum and other famous sights, or even take a canal cruise.

Take a guided tour around the Clara Maria Cheese Farm & Clog Factory, and undertake various tasks such as cheese making, caring for the cheese, feeding the cows and goats. Later, spend some time exploring the various working windmills of Zaanse Schans and – if you’ve time - visit Keukenhof Gardens to see the beautiful gardens famous for their tulips.

Explore the local surroundings using the activity sheets provided to apply map skills, plus consider the changing face of this coastal resort and visitor origin.

For the best views of Rotterdam, ascend the Euromast Tower.
