Unique history throughout
Flevoland is totally different from the rest of the Netherlands. Here, you are literally walking on the floor of the former Zuiderzee.
Islands on dry land
As a result of the ‘inpoldering’ (reclamation of land), the former islands Urk and Schokland were all at once islands on dry land, unique in the world.
New art and architecture
There is revolutionary urban planning, architecture and landscape art to be found in the cities and landscapes of Flevoland. Be amazed by the architecture in Almere, number 1 among Europe’s new cities for its modern architecture.
Attractions for young and old

For example, you can visit Walibi Holland, Batavia Stad Amsterdam Fashion Outlet, Bataviawerf, or explore the unique story of the reclamation of the land of Flevoland at the New Land Heritage Centre.
