Maeslant Storm Surge Barrier - The Keringhuis

Attraction, Conference and meeting accommodation, Port

The Keringhuis is the information centre for flood risk management in Zuid-Holland and the impressive Maeslant Storm Surge Barrier. The Dutch Delta Works are extremely important for the protection of our country against flooding, especially in the provinces Zeeland, Zuid-Holland and Noord-Brabant. The Delta Works construction is unique and therefore receives a lot of international attention. The Maeslant Storm Surge Barrier is the last part of the Delta Works. It is the largest movable flood barrier in the world. This impressive construction can’t be described in words, only experienced! You can visit the informationcentre yourself, or book a one hour guided tour ,(only possible in weekends or holidays)
then you also will be taken to the outside area of the impressive storm surge barrier. This is special, because the area is only accessible under supervision. The tours are also offered in English and (sometimes) German.
The informationcentre is situated between Maassluis and Hoek van Holland and easily reached by car. Or take metroline B to Hoek van Holland Haven and rent a bike. (4 km distance)
