More information

The Keringhuis shows how we keep our feet dry in the water-rich province of Zuid-Holland. At the interactive Watervertelplein, you decide whether there is a storm, heavy rain or blazing sunshine. Discover how the Maeslant storm surge barrier works. Or go outside and get hands-on experience with pumps and sandbags in the water playground and see how you can contribute to climate adaptation. Guided tours are available. For adults or children, in Dutch, English, German or French. For small or large groups, everything is possible. There are introductory tours (also possible in English or German) on weekends and during holidays. Reservations can be made on the website.

The Keringhuis can be reached by public transport with metro line B to (and stop at) Hoek van Holland Haven. It is about a 1-hour walk from this metro station, or you can rent a bike.
