Shop until you drop: Greatest Outlet Mall in the Netherlands
Besides cheap affordable Dutch quality products, you find the largest international collection of outlet stores in the Netherlands in Bataviastad. This Outlet Mall is well known all over Holland because of the huge discounts: up to 70%. This Outlet Mall is in the city of Lelystad: 40 km from Amsterdam on the banks of the biggest lake in Holland: the IJsselmeer. I heard friends talk a lot about this collection of outlet stores. So recently I went there. I could not believe my eyes to see so many brands collected in a special outlet town. We did some serious shopping and came back home with Asics, Jeans, and kitchen equipment.

The Best Outlet Mall of the Netherlands has a Port
This port, one of the many ports of Lelystad, is just a short walk from the Outlet Mall. There on the shore of the IJsselmeer, lies the VOC ship Batavia. Moored at a quay almost 30 feet below sea level. Just follow the dike and climb on board an authentically rebuilt vessel originally sailing for the Dutch East India Company (VOC). Actually, the Batavia perished on its maiden Voyage on 4 June 1629. Now the ship Batavia is a part of the Museum Batavia land. A surprising museum that has a lot to offer to all ages. From this port, you can visit the Marker Wadden, five new uninhabited natural islands.

How to get to the best Outlet Mall in the Netherlands
The Mall is open 7 days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. On weekends it is open a bit later from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
It is a very good idea to hop on a train from Amsterdam to the railway station in Lelystad. There you catch bus number 3 which takes you directly to the Outlet Mall Bataviastad. We went to the Outlet Mall by car.
