History of Zeewolde

Zeewolde is located in the south of the province of Flevoland, between the Wolderwijd and the Nuldernauw, opposite Harderwijk, Ermelo, Putten, Nijkerk and Spakenburg. The name “Zeewolde” refers to the primeval forest that grew here before this era and was later inundated by sea water. Around 790, there was a village near what was then called Seaewald. Due to floods in the late Middle Ages, the village was inundated by the Zuiderzee. In 1968 South Flevoland was reclaimed and in 1979 Zeewolde became the domain of pioneering farmers.

Zeewolde has been an independent municipality since 1984, making it the youngest municipality in the Netherlands. Between water, meadows and forests, a village was built in a very short time and with it a community. Zeewolde is not only a unique place to live and work, it is also made for adventure! The vast and special nature, the beaches, the village character, the desire for honest products and the numerous water sports opportunities make this beautiful area a popular leisure destination for everyone!
