That in itself makes Wieringenwaard such an unusual spot: this land was created by human hands.
Beautifully situated in the Anna Paulowna polder, this ribbon village (with its listed farmhouses, water towers and corn mills) enjoys a lively village culture. During the Flower Days, which are organised at the beginning of May, many flower mosaics made of hyacinths can be admired.
