Waterloopbos

At the edge of the Noordoostpolder in the province of Flevoland there is the ‘Rijksmonument Waterloopbos’, now an outdoor museum where the former laboratory for exploring different water constructions (1951-1996) was.

Nowadays computer simulations have taken over, but until 1996 this was the place where different models were build in order to test how water constructions would behave. This includes the famous Deltawerke, the harbor of Bangkok or a model of the Rotterdamse Willemstunnel, a train tunnel under the harbor of Rotterdam.

Here is a collection of some of the pictures from today. Because it was rainy weather, I only had my phone with me. Enjoy, this is truly a nice place for a day visit!
