Europe's biggest seaworld

Harderwijk is situated at the southern end of the IJselmeer and was once a thriving fishing village. The IJselmeer was cut off from the North Sea when the Afsluitdijk was constructed creating an inland lake.

The biggest attraction now is the Dolfinarium, which is also Europe's biggest seaworld. The main stars here are the dolphins, seals and walrusses.

    I don't get to see many of them, but I enjoy a good aquarium or wildlife display as well. Those Walrus do look like something you don't want to mess with!
