Travelling through the Houtribdijk causeway

Located in Northern Holland, the Houtribdijk is a major causeway and dike constructed between 1963 and 1975.

The causeway is totally paved. It’s 27.6km (17.14 miles) long with a width of 68m running from Lelystad (capital of the province of Flevoland) and Enkhuizen (in the province of North Holland and the region of West-Frisia). The causeway, part of the Zuiderzee Works, is so long that drivers can actually lose sight of land.

The drive is definitely worth it. A drive not to be missed! The dike carries the N302 road, which is used by 8,500 vehicles per day with a speed limit of 100 km/h. There are many excellent photo opportunities. Halfway along the dike there is Trintelhaven, a rest area with a restaurant and a broadcasting station.
