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!

Never really understood the importance of the windmills. To see first hand this ancient technology and how it impacted the development of the netherlands was eye opening.

As a resident of this little village, I need to write some about the windmills. Every weekend visited by loy's of tourists - mainly from Asia - it's busy and crowded on the streets of Kinderdijk. Living here is very quiet and nice.

It is one of the top 5 places in Holland for sure. Not sure if you need the tickets, the area is free, except to enter inside ONE windmill (surely nice but probebly not worth the price!!) and a visitor centre.

In Amsterdam we got the Hop On, Hop Off pass that covered the red double decker busses and their canal boats. Then for any other connections or to quickly get back to the hotel we used Uber. Cheap and convenient.
