Trip Planner: Europe / The Netherlands / South Holland Province / Kinderdijk / World Heritage Kinderdijk
Almost everyone associates the Netherlands with windmills--at World Heritage Kinderdijk, you can see a channel lined with 19 of them dating back to 1740. Used for the last time during the World War II, these structures used hydraulics to provide drainage, protecting the area from floods. Although advanced technology is replacing windmills today, you can still admire the beauty of theses majestic structures.

World Heritage Kinderdijk reviews
I am an Asian and visited there with my mom September in 2019. Unfortunately, we met racists there twice within two hours. I guess they are local children and another was a man with family. Both... more »
A magic place in the world. I will always remember that experience as one of the best in my life. When on the interior of a windmill you will feel charmed, wondering how these people were living... more »
Very nice and interesting. Just needs a few improvements in my opinion. First of all the language is a big barrier if you don’t speak Dutch. The lady at the reception knew English and explained us everything perfectly. After that it was a struggle. Personal hardly spook any English except for one or two. Everybody was very friendly but very difficult to understand, we felt we missed out on a lot of things. On the River cruise there was no guide. We just sat there for half an hour going up and down the river with no explanation what so ever. They speak very highly about their app for the mobile but it didn’t serve us at all. Audio guides only if you go walking, no separate audio guides for the windmill museums. The walking path ends at the first museum, only half of the whole distance to the museum furthest away. The second half you have to use the circle path to get to the end on foot, not very safe. My 4 stars is because I think it’s a great place to visit and it has a lot of history. The views of the windmills are spectacular, just needs a few practical improvements to make it perfect.
Amazing place, visited in 2014. We travelled there from Rotterdam, taking a clipper boat. Once we arrived, we rented a bicycle which in my opinion, is the best way to visit Kinderdijk, because there is a very nice cycle pathway going throughout the windmills. It is also possible to visit one of the windmills, but we decided not to do it. I think we should have done it and I feel to recommend it, so you will avoid any regret.
