Low, lower, lowest, that's Laag Holland! A unique piece of Holland north of Amsterdam where time seems to have stood still in some places. Here, man and nature have learned to work and live with the water. The landscape filled with grazing cows, centuries-old windmills, kilometres of dykes and wide views ensure peace and quiet here.

On the water

By boat

Water sports enthusiasts cannot have their fun in Laag Holland, because there is an abundance of water here. Large waters, such as the Gouwzee and the IJssel- and Markermeer, but also ponds, canals, small rivers and ditches. And all of them are passable. From quietly bobbing on the water to tearing across the water at breakneck speed: everything is possible here!
