Small Group (Shared) Experience
Live the tale of an exciting windmill adventure at UNESCO’s Kinderdijk and visit its authentic windmills.
There's not a windmill complex like Kinderdijk anywhere else in the world to be found. The ingenious system of windmills and pumping stations has been keeping the soil dry here for nearly a thousand years now, in a constant struggle between human brains and the power of the water.
This tour includes hotel pick up (between 9 and 9:30 am), so you can comfortably wait in your hotel to start your tour to the beautiful windmills of Kinderdijk. Visit Kinderdijk with our small group tour of maximum 7 travelers and a friendly and professional guide.
Upon arrival, watch a brief introductory movie about Kinderdijk and learn about its history. After the movie your tour guide walks you to two museum mills, where you meet the millers and learn about their trade. All the other windmills are still inhabited by millers and their families. Climb the steep stairs inside one of the two mills and see for yourself how water and wind are paramount in the lives of millers. Ask the millers anything you'd like to know about milling, before walking back to the visitor's center to see the old machinery.
Then your guide sets up a meeting time and point, so you also have some free time to explore the area on your own. With your ticket, let the skippers of Kinderdijk carry you across the glittering basin waters for 30 minutes; a guarantee for marvellous pictures.
After Kinderdijk it’s time for the transfer back to Amsterdam, where you are dropped off at Amsterdam Central Station around 3 pm.
