Create an itinerary including World Heritage Kinderdijk
Almost everyone associates the Netherlands with windmills--at World Heritage Kinderdijk, you can see a channel lined with 19 of them dating back to 1740. Used for the last time during the World War II, these structures used hydraulics to provide drainage, protecting the area from floods. Although advanced technology is replacing windmills today, you can still admire the beauty of theses majestic structures.

  • This is a great place to go for a walk and admire the windmills and landscape. Be aware that parking can be done early in the morning but the shuttle bus doesn't start until 10.00. Besides that, we're definitely going to come back in the future.
  • Interesting historical place but outrageous how much the tickets are to visit the _TWO_ windmills. Good luck reading any of the descriptions if you can’t read Dutch or English. Better just take the free walk and see everything from the outside.
