Those sailing from Friesland to Overijssel or vice versa will pass through Ossenzijl, situated at the edge of the Weerribben-Wieden National Park. There is a busy yet pleasant atmosphere here during the summer months. All waterway traffic passes the Ossenzijler bridge to and from the Frisian lakes. The Buitencentrum (Outdoor Centre) is the perfect starting point for excursions in the stunning natural beauty of the National Park.
