We went to Kinderdijk through a river cruise. It was pouring rain but still a breathtaking line up of windmills that were so impressive. The guide (who volunteers their time) gave us fabulous history, stories and fables -- and helped depict the life of those running and living in the windmills. A definite stop along your trip -- and be... More

This is the "dream scene" you've had in your head since childhood of what Holland looks like with windmills and canals. The world's largest collection of windmills all in one place is a great for photos, biking, or walking along the many trails. It's not touristy like many attractions. We arrived just as the UNESCO building was closing, the nice... More

I had remembered seeing a picture of a Holland windmill in elementary school. This was my first trip to Holland and confessed with a friend my desire to check out one such windmill. My friend took me to this place and the mills were amazing. I was amazed at the power generated by the wind and the way it was... More

We visited this place in the beginning of February. Well, scenery is OK, but in Netherlands scenery is everywhere very beautiful. In winter time there is nothing to do here. In summer there are boats and canal cruises - should be interesting, but weather should be good to enjoy this attraction, otherwise - most probably will be a waste of... More

Pack a lunch, dress comfy and rent a bike for the afternoon. Riding through the canals, you get a vast view of the windmills and landscape. Take an afternoon to spend exploring, relaxing and enjoying the outdoors. The little gift shop is pretty cool too.

Wow! There are so many beautiful places to see in the Netherlands. This stands out. The reason I enjoyed it is because it is a sight that takes you back to how people used to live. Be sure and tour some of the old wind mills. Check out the beds built into the walls. Everything was so compact and clean!... More

We only had one day in Rotterdam and walked from our hotel across town to the river and caught a boat to the windmills at Kinderdijk. We arrived a little late in the afternoon but it was a pleasant boat trip and it was a very Dutch thing to do is go and have a look at the windmills. Well... More
