Wet feet: the story of The Netherlands and water
Welcome to the ”Rising Sea” story cottage, in which we pay tribute to pure Dutch craftsmanship and our centuries-old “unique” relationship with water. It’s thanks to Dutch ingenuity that we can enjoy a carefree holiday here today. We have hung life-saving paraphernalia from a rescue ladder above the dining table. The curtains show you how high the water would be here without the protection of the dikes. Wet clothes? Hang your laundry to dry on the coffee table! We’ve specially designed this cottage with children in mind.
Safety first is the order of the day in the play corner; they can clamber onto a real raft. The lamp in the corner is their fishing net bobbing in the water. Down at the water, the lifeguard keeps watch while they sail their boat.
