    First stretch your finger into the wind and then decide. The path over the bridge is very beautiful and offers interesting views when the water appears on both sides.
    In the wind, the track is a bit power consuming.

    Here is also worth a visit to the nearby Delta Park. Do not forget your swimming trunks when the weather is nice. In the Delta Park there is a water park for splashing.
    In addition, you can also go to a small museum below the bridge or Sperrwerk.

    Here it is really nice. Everywhere paths lead to the beach, to which one can also take his bike. At the roadside you can see birds breeding.

    Beautiful, great to drive storm surge weir with an impressive view of the sea.
    "The waters of the North Sea flooding in the tide through the Oosterschelde storm surge, which is considered a technical wonder of the modern world and can close off the entire Oosterschelde from the sea in an emergency. The tide reaches about three meters. "Source Wikipedia
    At each end of the bridges are mobile toilets.

    The Oosterschelde was initially as well as other areas of the delta area separated by a closing dike of the North Sea. This would have cut off the Oosterschelde from the tides. Over time, freshwater would have displaced the saltwater, which would have had a massive impact on the entire flora and fauna. In particular, negative effects on mussel and oyster farming would have been expected at Yerseke (Wikipedia).
