But there is more to the Noordoostpolder. Reclaimed from the Zuiderzee
in the nineteen forties, the Noordoostpolder is characterized by its
splendid views and squared fields, separated by straight ditches and
tree lanes. Standing on top of the dyke you can see for miles, enjoying
a magnificent view of the IJsselmeer and fields. The former island
Schokland, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 1995, and the
lovely old fisherman’s town Urk are also worth a visit!
