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 nearby 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.
