It is a very nice place to learn how Mills worked and what was the life of the mill operators like. Well kept and presented. Only thing that could improve is the explanation of the history of the site.
This place is beautiful! It was lovely walking to have a look at all of the windmills. On-site cafe has poor range of food options and the food didn't seem very fresh. We would recommend only going inside the first of the open windmills. Also,...More

Visited Kinderdijk on a dry New Years Day. It was quite busy and the parking was limited due to building work. It is well worth visiting one of the museum mills. The miller on duty (who actually lives in another windmill) was very informative and...More

I can imagine it is confusing for you as there is no dock mentioned for Kinderdijk on the website of the Watertaxi. Can you please contact the Watertaxi via +31 (0)10 403 03 03. You can ask them whether they... More
I can imagine it is confusing for you as there is no dock mentioned for Kinderdijk on the website of the Watertaxi. Can you please contact the Watertaxi via +31 (0)10 403 03 03. You can ask them whether they do sail from Rotterdam towards Kinderdijk Molenkade. .
Currently the Waterbus does not sail directly from Rotterdam to Kinderdijk, but you can transfer to another ferry in Ridderkerk. This ferry is called 'het Driehoeksveer' and takes you to Kinderdijk Molenkade which is very close to the entrance.
Hope to have informed you well and wish you a pleasant stay when you visit World Heritage Kinderdijk.
