Woudagemaal Pumping Station Tour

The ir. D.F. Woudagemaal in Lemmer, opened in 1920 by Queen Wilhelmina, is the largest steam-driven pumping station in the world still in use.Even today the monumental pumping station ensures that the people of Fryslân keep their feet dry during high water. When that happens, the ‘cathedral of steam’ pumps up over four million litres of water per minute from the Frisian ‘boezem’ (drainage pool) into the IJsselmeer.
Masterly experience
The visitor centre, which is connected to the pumping station by means of a walkway, is a spectacular experience for both young and old.
The experience centre provides you with information on the Woudagemaal and water management in Fryslân by means of an impressive 3D movie, an interactive water table, the Hall of Fame, animations and experiments.
Experience the immense power of steam.
