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!

A wonderful walk along the water, taking in the very picturesque windmills. Rental bikes are available for those with the time and energy to explore a little further. Admission fee to museum display but no fee to simply stroll.

If you want to see how they have kept most of the Netherlands dry for over 200 years this is great place to start. Very authentic. Not too touristy. Nice Museum as well.

This pristine UNESCO world heritage site is a must see. An excursion on our recent Rhine River cruise, it is amazing to see nineteen still operational, although not practically, windmills pictured against a lush agricultural back drop.

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.
