Located in Northern Holland, the Afsluitdijk is a major causeway and dike constructed between 1927 and 1933.
The causeway is asphalted. It’s 32 kilometres (20 mi) long and a width of 90 metres (300 ft) running from Zurich (in the community of Súdwest-Fryslân in the province of Friesland) and Den Oever, a village in the Dutch province of North Holland. The causeway is so long that drivers can actually lose sight of land. The drive is definitely worth it. A drive not to be missed! There are many excellent photo opportunities. With 300,000 visitors per year, the Afsluitdijk is one of Holland’s most popular water engineering constructions.
