An island? or two islands? Voorne and Putten, separated by a historical shipping route named “De Bernisse” The island is a transition zone between a town, sea and land. It connects the urban area of Rotterdam with rural Zeeland. It is a border between “then and now”, “tradition and future” with the separation of natural water. Step over the border into a beautiful area of water, nature, history and harbours where you can exert and relax, recharge and offload.
