UserComment UNICODEThe belvedere monument on the Afsluitdijk, The Afsluitdijk (Dutch pronunciation: [QfslSy/dd[ik], Frisian: Ofsltdyk; English: Closure Dike) is a major causeway in the Netherlands, constructed between 1927 and 1932 and running from Den Oever on Wieringen in North Holland province, to the village of Zurich in Friesland province, over a length of 32 kilometres (20 mi) and a width of 90 metres (300 ft), at an initial height of 7.25 metres (23.8 ft) above sea-level. It is a fundamental part of the larger Zuiderzee Works, damming off the Zuiderzee, a salt water inlet of the North Sea, and turning it into the fresh water lake of the IJsselmeer. The Afsluitdijk was the initial demonstration site for a 130 kilometres per hour (81 mph) speed limit in the Netherlands.
