Excursion tour to the Betuwe: "The border of above and below. Dutch living with water in the last millenium"

Since medieval times Dutch people have to live with water. In three topics this will be illustrated in an excursion in the centre of the Netherlands. Departing at 9.30 from the location of the conference in Utrecht the bus tour heads for the centre of the river area. Famous old cities and landscapes are the basis of this retrospective on how the Dutch had to cope with water. The first stop will be a coffee break in the mid 19th century fortress "Asperen", part of the 'Hollandse Waterlinie' (Dutch Water Line). Besides having a drink the ingeneous water work of a dike crossing a river is visited. The tour includes an half an hour walk around a break-throug lake with an on-site explanation of mediaeval dutch dike building and the sometimes unexpected picturesque results. For the traditional pancake lunch the old "free city" of Buren is the third stop. A walk through this small city scents the flavour of history. The famous windmill "Prins van Buren" is a landmark at the Aalsdijk, which dike is the remains of the very first type of water work in the beginning of the second millennium. It is a so called Side dike, perpendicular on the river. At the connection of those dikes with the small peat streams the first cities arose like Buren, being a city with earth and brick walls since 1395. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buren).

Participation to this excursion is limited to 50 persons.
Costs: € 50,-
