Het eiland van Easterein

Het eiland van Easterein

Westergo, the area west of the former Middelsee, is home to the oldest dikes in the Netherlands. The first dikes were laid around a single farm and the associated fields. From around 900, ring dikes were erected around increasingly larger areas: the so-called ’mother polders’. From there, the rest of the country was provided with dikes.

The ’Eiland van Easterein’ is one of the four mother polders of Westergo. The polder is still clearly recognizable in the landscape. A road follows the entire route of the ring dike, which is still largely present. The southern part of the dike is part of the famous Slachtedyk.

In addition to a wonderful example of the characteristic Frisian terpen landscape, you will also find the village that many consider to be the most beautiful in Friesland: Easterein.
