Until 1969 this area was the Lauwerszee . After the construction of a dam, the salt water was replaced by fresh water and the Lauwersmeer developed. This is where thousands of migratory birds make an intermediate stop, and how could they be wrong? This is an exceptional, vast, tranquil and varied scenic area.
One of the loveliest, unspoiled areas of countryside in the Netherlands is in the north of the province of Groningen. Together, the mudflats, terps, woodland and Lauwersmeer National Park form the Wadden Land.
