Schokland: a symbol
of the Netherlands


The former island Schokland is a symbol of the traditional Dutch struggle against the water. Traces of this battle can be found everywhere on and around the island. This area has alternated between being sea and dry land, peninsula and island, peat and polder.
The former island still stands out as an elongated gently sloping back against the flat surrounding landscape of the Northeast polder.
Nowadays Schokland is an unique natural en cultural monument combined.
