#Water, wind and newly created land

One striking thing to note: Flevoland events often include the battle against the elements as one ingredient. You can experience the largest in-water boat show HISWA of northern Europe, the Dutch Water Week has already grown into an event that has been going on for longer with water competitions being held at various places.
