Private (Group) Experience
Live the tale of an exciting windmill adventure at UNESCO’s Kinderdijk and combine it with a visit of one of the oldest and best preserved medieval castles in the Netherlands: Amsterdam Castle Muiderslot.
This tour includes a pick up from any address in the region, so you and your private party (max. 7 people) can comfortably start your tour to Kinderdijk & Muiderslot.
Depending on your location, your guide picks you up around 9:30 am to visit Kinderdijk first. There's not a windmill complex like this 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.
Upon arrival, watch a brief introductory movie about Kinderdijk and learn about its history. After the movie you visit, together with your guide, the two museum mills by boat. Let the skippers of Kinderdijk carry you across the glittering waters of the basins to the two museum mills. The other sixteen windmills are still inhabited by millers and their families.
At the mills you can meet the millers and learn about their trade. Ask them anything you'd like to know about milling! Climb the stairs inside one of the mills and see for yourself how water and wind are paramount in the lives of millers.
Then it's for the 1.5 hr transfer to Amsterdam Muiderslot Castle.
A real medieval castle, with a moat, towers, battlements, arrow slits and a drawbridge. This so-well preserved castle is over 700 years old and surrounded by water and beautiful, historical gardens.
The castle has a long and turbulent history. Discover its secrets, with included admission and a one-hour guided tour exclusive for your party. After the tour you have some free time to continue your explorations on your own. Discover the historical gardens, where they grow vegetables of the past and herbs for all sorts of purposes, enjoy a drink on the terrace of the the tavern in the courtyard of the castle, or watch the birds of prey. Then it's time to go back to your drop off address, where you arrive around 4:30 pm (depending on traffic).
