Good morning

Windmills at Kinderdijk

Start your exciting day trip in a small village called Kinderdijk. This place is near Rotterdam in South Holland. When you visit Kinderdijk, you step right into the middle of Dutch history. Kinderdijk has been UNESCO World Heritage since 1997. Everything in this village lies below sea level, so to keep our feet dry, the people have been cooperating with the wind and water for centuries. Their windmills and waterways tell the tale of the Low Countries. Travel back in time and experience the story of windmills, water, and willpower in Kinderdijk! You can visit the village with the Tourist Day Ticket via Waterbus or the bus lines of Qbuzz depending where you come from. Click here to plan your journey for directions.
