Ooltgensplaat, a village in the Dutch province of South Holland on the island Goeree-Overflakkee (coordinates: 51° 41′ 0″ N, 4° 21′ 0″ E), where there was once a Mennonite congregation in conjunction with near-by Bommel. The Mennonites of Ooltgensplaat had some difficulty in 1622 in performing their marriages, which had hitherto been done according to their old customs. By 1676 the congregation had died out.
