Bird watching

Lauwersmeer: a top-class location

The hides in the Jaap Deensgat, the Kollumerwaard and the Ezumakeeg guarantee you some special bird watching. Which is why the Lauwersmeer National Park is in the top league of first-class bird watching locations. Twitchers spot some rarity or other practically every day in the Lauwersmeer area. You can watch the birds from the hides at close quarters without disturbing them. Don't forget your binoculars!
