About this spot
The Afsluitdijk (or Closure Dyke) is a long causeway in the Netherlands. It was built in the 1930s to protect the country from flooding and to create a freshwater lake called the IJsselmeer. It is fully exposed to the elements and with ideal conditions can provide very appealing images.

Around this area you can take photos.

All my photos are taken from the main lookout (the primary viewpoint marker) or from the of te pier lookouts.
You can also go onto the walkway above the highway!
About 1/3 of the way coming from Amsterdam side of The Netherlands, there is a monument to its construction and around this monument there are parking spots and little piers for the boats, on the IJsselmeer side. There is also a little restaurant and a high lookout onto the IJsselmeer.
