De Alde Feanen National Park Visitor Centre

The visitor centre is an ideal starting point for your voyage of discovery through De Alde Feanen National Park. The information desk has every available map for sailing trips, canoe trips, walks and cycle rides. Children can borrow stimulating research material which will help them to get to know the area in an adventurous way. The information desk also sells books, educational material and fun gadgets.

You can use the interactive resources in the visitor centre to learn about the area. The exhibition is a stimulating way of finding out about how the area came into existence, and its flora and fauna, management and recreational opportunities. Children can play and learn in the Hands-on Experience Garden.

Handy: there is an EV charging station for bikes at the visitor centre!
