    Special for tourist you can visit the Afsluitdijk Monument designed by architect W.M. Dudok. There is a small souvenir shop -where Jan Conijn is selling postcards for 50 years- and a panorama tower.

    The monument was completed at september 25 1933 and was a gift of the construction company.

    Visit Breezanddijk. It was a former artificial island, needed for the construction of the dike. Now it's a hidding place for ships during bad weather and an army practice location.

    There is a gas station.

    At both lock complexes there are bridges to allow passage of ships. Traffic on the highway comes to a standstill during these times.

    Favorite thing: The Afsluitdijk is a straight line for most of the dike.
    Only at the Frisian side there's a bend leading it over the shallow base.
