UNESCO World Heritage | Ir. D.F. Wouda Steam Pumping Station - Lemmer
The Ir. D.F. Wouda Steam Pumping Station is the largest working steam pumping station in the world. The sixty-metre chimney can be seen from far and wide. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998.
When the water is high, it still ensures dry feet for the Frisians. Queen Wilhelmina opened the Ir. D.F. Wouda Pumping Station in 1920 and it is owned by Wetterskip Fryslân. Since 2011, you can dive into the masterful world of steam power, water management and architecture in the visitor centre next to the pumping station.
