Our riverboat cruise stopped here and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The entry fee is only 8.5 euros. It was educational, inspiring, scenic and fun. A bit crowded to tour the open windmill, but good crowd management. Other than that you can walk or bike a good distance enjoying all the 19 windmills. We were there on a windy holiday afternoon...

We visited Kinderdijk to see and learn about windmills. We took a bus (Number 90) from Rotterdam and the journey took about 1 hour. From the bus stop, it was a long walk in to the closest windmill. Very nice and pleasant visit, of course, go early to avoid crowds.

Kinderdijk is amazing for €8.50 you can rent a bike and pedal around 18th century windmills. There are 19 beautiful working windmills, dating from 1738. You will enjoy seeing the inside of two of the windmills with working kingpins, cogs, and wheels. Artifacts that the family of 15 (yes ,13 children) used. Amazing to think a windmill can function as... More

You can on,y go into 1 but it's worth the visit. You didn't come this far to not see a windmill up close. The inside is decorated with period artifacts to give you a sense of living inside a windmill. Pretty place.

One of the truly best places to view 19 working windmills - dating back to the early 1600s. There's a great museum on how it all works. Very informative.... you can opt for one of the boat rides if you don't want to make the trek on foot, but we'd recommend walking (mind the goose/duck "leftovers" and the bikers!). So... More

As said by other reviewers, this is the place to see windmills - 19 all at once. It's a very low key tourist experience without the flashy gift shop, food vendors and the like but the better for it in my view. Although there were lots of tourists, there was so much space so other people were not intrusive. We... More

For windmill fans, this will be your dream place to visit. Parking is 5EUR unless of course you booked accommodation close by then you can walk. Toilets near entrance. FREE entry to walk or cycle along the path. (make sure you stick to the correct side, one side for bikes the other for walkers) You can choose to pay for... More

In my opinion, this is the place to see windmills in Holland - 19 of them at the same spot with a good explanation of how the water pumping system worked. The area is free to visit but if you want to see the information movie and/or visit the two mills that are opened to public, you’ll need to pay... More
