To build dams into the water of the Zuiderzee they used so called 'kraggen': floting clusters of water plants and sheer. These 'kraggen' were cheap and could be found in the neighbourhood near villages like Wanneperveen, Dwarsgracht and Giethoorn.
At the end of the western dam a little wooden shed was placed to house the lightkeeper. Those who erected it nicknamed it the Kraggenburght (translated: Kraggenburrow). Which explanes the present name of Kraggenburg.
Kraggenburg is a very social community. It houses a wide range of sports and social clubs. There is an annual fair where sports , theater groups and games are played and drinks add to the fun.
