From Rotterdam to the Delta Works:


The Delta Works are hard to reach with public transport. So I would book a tour or rend a car. The Delta Works has an exhibition centre called Deltapark Neeltje Jans (adress: Faelweg 5, 4354 RB, Vrouwenpolder). Travel time by car, 1 hour and 15 minutes. Take the N57 so you drive over the Storm Barriers.
