Lauwersmeer National Park is a unique area, the landscape is shaped in a special way because it used to be an inland sea. Now the area is closed with a dam and salty and sweet water no longer overlap. The vastness and openness is for many animals a pleasant habitat. Especially birds enjoy the food the landscape is offering.
The area is therefore a place well known to nature lovers and bird watchers.
Lauwersmeer National Park is also very popular for boaters, surfers , kitesurfers and fishers. Lauwersmeer is called the portal to experience Friesland by boat.
