The Island Polder:
The Eilandspolder is a wetland nature reserve (Natura 2000) that was dyked in the 13th century. Until the 17th century it was located in the middle of a number of very large lakes, namely the Schermer and the Beemster, and not far from the sea. The entire Eilandspolder is primarily a meadow area, rich in meadow birds, such as curlew and black-tailed godwit. There are also natural lakes, wide waterways.
This 17th century polder was set up to convert the threatening inland waterway De Beemster into fertile and profitable agricultural land. A sturdy dyke of 42 kilometers long was built around the wild lake and a ring canal was dug around it. Then 43 windmills started pumping out the lake. In 1612 De Beemster dried up and the layout of the polder could begin, which was done according to an orderly and strict geometric pattern. De Beemster owes its fame to this rational subdivision and layout. The Beemster polder has been a World Heritage Site since 1999.
