The De Schollevaar bird hide allows for an intimate peek into a cormorant colony. This is where you can watch the birds sitting on their nests and tending to their young. The hut is not freely accessible and can only be visited on an official Staatsbosbeheer excursion.

Route description
By car follow the A6 (Amsterdam-Emmeloord) motorway and take exit number 10, direction Lelystad via Larserdreef. Turn left onto the Torenvalkweg and follow this until you reach the Knardijk dyke. Turn right onto the Knardijk dyke. The visitor centre lies on your left, beyond the railway viaduct, where you can park. The visitor centre is not easy to access by public transport, as the nearest bus stop is an hour’s walk away. You can hire a bike in Lelystad; from the train station it takes about half an hour to cycle to the visitor centre by following Buizerdweg/Knardijk. Located in the very heart of the area, the De Schollevaar hide is not identified on the map and can only be visited on official excursions.
