How the Dutch have won the war against water (in style) [Video inside!]

As a Dutchman one would almost forget how awesome we are when it comes to our battle against the water and the realization of the mighty Deltaworks. Luckily there are plenty of videos to remind us of that feat and tell us why the Netherlands isn’t underwater (or a watery mess like so many other countries in the world).

We’ve actually got four videos!

Here’s one about the Dutch Delta Works and how they were built to defend the Netherlands from the sea

Here’s Levi, one of our fav vloggers, checking out the Deltaworks and specifically the Oosterscheldekering

You want even better shots from the Deltaworks? This was the best drone 4k magic video we could find out there

And then there’s, of course, our very own video of how water management is just one of those seven things the Dutch are great at!

How impressed are you by the Dutch’s mastery over water? Let us know in the comments below!

Abuzer founded DutchReview a decade ago because he thought expats needed it and wanted to make amends for the Dutch cuisine. He has a Masters in Political Science and IT but somewhere always wanted to study history or good old football. He also a mortgage in the Netherlands and will happily tell you too how to get one. Born and raised in Rotterdam, Abuzer now lives in Leiden but is always longing back to his own international year in Italy.
