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!

Visited this UNESCO WHS yesterday whilst on a visit to Dordrecht. What a wonderful discovery. Dozens of windmills many in full working order and some in operation and rented out as accommodation. You can reach this place either by car or take the waterbus from...More

If you get the all-day regional ticket (euro13.50 as distinct from 7.50 for the Rotterdam local tourist day ticket) it covers the water bus 202 direct to Kinderdijk. If you get water bus 20, which runs more often, you then have to pay an extra...More

We visited the windmills when our river cruise ship docked in Kinderdijk. Nice walk to the mills, only one open which was very interesting. Good photo opportunities but be prepared for crowds trying to get in to the only working mill.

A highly recommended place to visit for anyone coming to the Netherlands. You not only get to observe dozens of historical windmills all in one sweeping view, but also enjoy a bit of the Dutch countryside, with its vast open spaces and network of waterways....More

When the weather is nice it's very nice there. It's not big and only one windmill is working and open for visitors. It's very far and not very easy to get there. Suggest to take a boat tour for 5.5€ pp and a short walk...More

This stop delivers as anticipated and more. The tour inside the spinning windmill was unreal. I'll try to load some video.

We went on a boat cruise on the Rhine and stopped to see the windmills. It was interesting, especially because the evening before we had a lecture abut how they work and their importance. However, I just had a hip replaced and I decided not...More

I think we weren't as impressed as we thought we would be for a combination of reasons. First of all, it was raining lightly, which didn't help. Second, our Viking tour guide was quite boring. We left the group early. The windmills were OK but...More

Hi - I think you intended to send this to the actual facility rather than me as a reviewer. We did not take the boat tour so I do not know those prices. Enjoy your visit!
