World Heritage Schokland and Surroundings - Schokland
Schokland and Surroundings have been a UNESCO World Heritage since 1995 and is the only archaeological monument in the Netherlands on this prestigious list. And rightly so, because this island on dry land has many secrets and beautiful mineral treasures. Schokland was an island in the former turbulent Zuiderzee and has been inhabited from the prehistory until the eviction in 1859. In that year the danger of flooding became too high, and the Schokkers had to leave their island. Since the reclamation of the Noordoostpolder in 1942, Schokland has been part of the mainland.
