Bird observation cabin

On the Eastern Scheldt side on a vast silt area, a bird island has been constructed. This bird obervation cabin is placed on the harbour dam opposite the island. From here there is a beautiful view of the island, the surrounding silts and the Eastern Scheldt.


It is a long but very special walk. You can easily spot how the former building docks have been taken over by nature. With a bit of luck you can also see a seal resting on one of the pontoons of the hanging mussels.




Wind farm Bouwokken is currently being built on the former Bouwdokhavens. This means that the bird observation cabin cannot be reached. This will take until the wind farm is ready, which is scheduled for the spring of 2018. More information is available at:
