This accessible tour to the Kinderdijk brings you to the windmills lined up along the water at Kinderdijk, in the South of Holland. This picturesque village allows for great pictures and a relaxing boat ride along the mills. This tour can be done with or without a guide. If you prefer to do the visit by yourselves, we will arrange for our driver to meet you at the port or your accommodation, he brings you to Kinderdijk with a private adapted vehicle and picks you up again, after the visit is over.
The village of Kinderdijk is located in the province of South-Holland and is known worldwide for its Kinderdijk Windmills. These 19 windmills are listed a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997 and the sight is one of the major tourist attractions in the Netherlands.
Kinderijk is located where the rivers Lek and the Noord meet. The Dutch have been managing the water since the Middle Ages. In and around the village, you find a large number of dikes, storage reservoirs, and pumping stations.
The best way to see the mills up close is to take a wheelchair accessible cruise boat that runs from the first of April till the first of October. This cruise takes you in about half an hour to the several mills and gives information in many different languages. The starting point is the beginning of the dike at the visitors center, opposite Kantine de Molenhoek. You need to reserve a spot on the boat prior to your visit.
