Kinderdijk is famous for the 19 windmills located 15 km southeast of Rotterdam. It is the largest concentration of windmills in the world.

The area is open year-round and entrance free. If you like to have a look inside a windmill to see how families lived centuries ago and you like to learn more running a windmill please note the opening hours for the museum and the interpretive center:

  • Peak season: April to October from 9 a.m. – 5.30 p.m.
  • Off-season: November to March from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
     

Avoiding crowds:
The UNESCO World Heritage site is very popular and a must when visiting Holland, the Netherlands. Either go early in the day before the tour buses arrive or visit the windmills after 4 p.m. in the peak season. Limited parking is the other reason when traveling by car. 
Even more crowded at the tulip season in April when tour buses combine Keukenhof with Kinderdijk.

A Great Place
