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!

Absolute must visit. Beautiful windmills and classic Holland. If a nice day, then just walk around outside but if rainy, go into the museums for 8 euros. Went in rain and it was still nice. Took taxi from den Haag because 6 ppl

Whenever I think of Holland I think of windmills so we had to visit this area. It is definitely a unique area worth checking out. The history of it is very interesting as well.

Do spend a few hours here to explore the whole area, knowing how they built the windmills through their video presentation will make you appreciate more. The poffertjes sold by the roadside was absolutely delicious, must try!

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.
