De Wieden Visitors' Centre

Outdoor activity with some shelter

The Wieden Visitors' Centre fits seamlessly into its surroundings and historical context. Situated in a picturesque street with historic peat-workers houses, you feel as if you're back in the time of the peat-diggers' colony. Inside, the exhibition tells you all about the area's natural treasures. Of course the water-rich area of the Wieden is mentioned, but also the proces of land building, whereby water areas are turned into dry land, is fully explained."

"De Wieden Nature Area forms together with the neighbouring De Weerribben National Park one of the most important lowland peat wetlands of Western Europe. This wetland landscape is the result of peat extraction in the 17th century and consists of waterways, shallow lakes, reed beds, grazing meadows and wetland woods. August 2002 saw the first sightings of the otter, a beautiful mammal which had become extinct in the Netherlands, but has since been reintroduced to the area.

This attraction De Wieden Visitors' Centre in Sint-Jansklooster is suitable for childrens party (vanaf € 8,00 p.p.).
