Marker Wadden Visitation Center

The Marker Wadden is endeavor to upgrade the Markermeer. A thick layer of sludge has completely restored the biological productivity in this area and the Marker Wadden will bring changes hier. The goal? A better quality of water, new soil, richer fish population and more birds!
In other words, the Marker Wadden becomes a true nature paradise! It is expected that all islands with their natural banks - made of sand, clay and sludge - will be ready in 2018. When the water becomes clearer the water plants, fish and countless shellfish will return. The expected consequence of this is that the endangered species of birds, such as the purple heron and the black tern settle in large numbers in the nature reserve. 
The Marker Wadden is about four kilometers from the dike that connects Lelystad to Enkhuizen. There have been several islands nowadays, and one of these islands recreational facilities, including a port, hiking trails and a visitor center. The last was already realized in 2016: In this floating (!) visitor center all your questions about the unique Marker Wadden project will be answered.
