We visited the attraction several times as our grandmother grew up in this area and it is good to bring overseas friends visiting Holland. Our grandmother used to earn a little pocket money here when she was a young girl as all the tourists liked to take a picture of her in typical Dutch clogs! So already, for a long... More

I thought windmills were used to grind wheat. The history behind the windmills is very interesting going back 800+ years and one of the originals still works. The amount of water they pump is amazing considering the age in which they were built. There is guide who explains how the engineering marvels of there time were operated and you can... More

When visiting the Netherlands this is an absolute must for your trip. Being able to walk around and then inside fully operational windmills will be a highlight of your trip. The tour guides provide excellent information about what the windmills do and why they are there.

The Netherlands are famous for many things including tulips, wooden clogs, cheese, and of course, windmills! When you visit Kinderdijk you won't be disappointed. However, due to the outdoor nature of this attraction, you should always check the weather forecast first in order to avoid rainy days. The museum consists of about 7 windmills and 2 or 3 of these...

I visited the windmills park yesterday. For €7.50 we saw 2 operating mills and a documentary movie. The souvenir shop is very interesting also. You can walk around for free and take nice pictures. Only to visit the mills is not for free.

This place is beautiful and we'll worth the trip and money paid. It was cheap for tickets and we got to go inside of a real working windmill. The windmill itself had been converted into a museum and showed what living inside was like and even had a family history within too. We went with 3 adults and 2 young... More

Wandering around the windmills and understanding their history from the guides was amazing. I went in September and we had a fairly sunny day and it was extremely pleasant. The blue sky and sunny day made for some wonderful photos and it was a lovely relaxing morning. I would definately not recommend going when raining or windy/cold as it is... More

We drove all the way from Amsterdam to Kinderdijk and it is really nice. We went there last week but we had luck with the time. Awesome sun shining in the sky. The views are awesome and I only voted "very good" since we did not have a lot of time to visit inside the mills (which you can) and... More

If you want to see Netherlands windmills, this is the place to visit. You can ride a boat along the canal and see them, or walk and pay a visit inside in some of them.

Very nice Unesco place with stunning windmills. It is good to take a walk and to see them. Also you can enter some of the windmills and to experience the living in it.
