The Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage site is a unique icon of Dutch water management and control. All the phases of the history of our struggle against water are still visible here. The unique collection of 19 mills in an authentic Dutch landscape is an eye catcher. Museum windmill Nederwaard shows how families lived and worked in our mills around 1900. And in Museum windmill Blokweer you can experience working as a miller. View our multi-screen film in the Visitors Centre, located in the former steam-driven pumping station. Get on board of our electric vessel, the Prince Friso, and view Kinderdijk from the water. Feel the wind, smell the water and listen to the sound of the windmills. The Kinderdijk World Heritage site is open almost the entire year!

Some hard working people made land. Awesome. Go see how they lived and worked - I'm never complaining about my commute again, I have it easy.

the view is amazing, I cant say enough and the history, culture and customs of the dutch people really is nice. the windmills are something, even though you see a lot of them all around the netherlands but this collection is something else.

The visitor centre was closed when we visited on New Year's Eve, however we still took an enjoyable walk along the riverbanks to view many of the windmills. Some great photo opportunities if you walk along far enough. Would probably be lovely in warmer months when there is less fog about, and when you can go inside the windmills. Sunset... More

we drove our car to visit the area and some of the mills. it was very interesting and very beautiful. we could walk along the waterfront, enjoy the wonderful views, it is a very pinturesque visit, easy to do. there are also buses, but not sure of convenience.

Stopped here during our Viking River Cruise. What a beautiful location. Surprisingly comfortable temperature. Breathtaking landscape views of the windmills through the misty air. Went inside the working windmills and it was fascinating to see the handmade wooden gears running so seamlessly. Must visit!

When you drive along the good but quite uncrowded road to Kinderdijk-Elshout area of Holland, it is awesome to spot a windmill in the distance, then two then ten, then - well there are 19 of them still in existence and working. In 1740 there would have been about 40 of these windmills on the landscape to gawk at, but... More

We loved this little stop on our Viking River Cruise! We rented bikes for about 3 Euros and visited the main row of mills along with some of the countryside. It was very cold as we were there in November, but if you can avoid the group tours inside the open mill, you will enjoy exploring the inside and talking... More

Thank you for your compliment! All the nineteen mills in World Herritge Kinderdijk are part of a water management system The mills don't produce linseed oil, don't sawing wood. also don't grinding spices and paint colours.
