Can I get there by public transport? I went to the marked area from Rotterdam by a bicycle, but it was very tough, never gonna do this again.

BORKUM IS NEDERLANDS
How to speak Dutch:
1, Put 15 marbles in your mouth
2. Try to speak German
wa-la you are not fluent in Dutch
Yes you can, everything is atleast accesable by bus, besides Renesse is a huge enclave of german people on a party holiday so everyone is already prepared for tourists.

A bit. I suspect they will only make it harder for foreigners because they are the ones who cause trouble
it's kinda unnatural because the whole country should've been flooded ages ago
nature really wants all the dutchcucks to be exterminated, but they try their hardest to prevent their doom for as long as possible
Does nature want black hands separated from their owners too?
Oh. But has anything serious happened because of river overflowing yet? Is any action being taken by the govt, like building more canals, drainage pipes or a system or anything?
I'm an architecture rookie student so I always wonder stuff like that. Living in São Paulo, where sludges and overflows aren't that uncommon whenever it rains heavily, I always wonder when looking at those pics of Belgium or Netherlands: "Dude, those houses seem so close to the river with no protection at all. What the hell happens when it rains?"
Yeah, country isn't big, but it feels very comfy, you can fast and easy get to the other city by train system or bus, if it's a small town.
Dykes are being reinforced all the time, there are huge contraptions (oosterscheldekering, delta works, ect) built to make the water fuck off when it rises too high.
They're always trying to improve. Protection from the rivers is all done per municipality (Waterschappen) and per region (Rijkswaterstaat). I don't know much about what they're doing inland, I do know what they're doing about my surroundings, which is the coast.
They mostly have these lands next to the rivers ready to be flooded (like a few hundred meters on both sides of the rivers), with subsequent dikes at the end of those lands. They are called "uiterwaarden". Look them up :P. It is very uncommon that these higher dikes (winter dikes) are break and when it happens, it isn't a natural disaster like a tsunami or something. The past few years dikes have been extended/reinforced due to more water flowing from Germany/France/Belgium (because of climate change perhaps), so we will be ready.
here an example of a river with its "uiterwaarden". they used to be farmlands, meadows for cattle or areas to get clay for bricks. Now they are mostly used as recreational areas/nature, this is why you can see all the bodies of water in them (because dem people like puddles)
