Description

The most beautiful windmills in the Netherlands can be found in Kinderdijk near Alblasserdam. Kinderdijk's 19 windmills have been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1997. The windmills at Kinderdijk were built from the end of the fourteenth century, but the remaining mills date from 1738 and 1740. The windmills at Kinderdijk were built to pump the water from the polder. Keep in mind that Kinderdijk can be very busy with tourists. After the beautiful windmills and this unique place in the Netherlands, this route also leads you around Alblasserdam. Big parties are organized in Alblasserdam twice a year. The Wednesday in the week of July 25 is Saint James. A horse market, a cycling race and an equestrian festival are then held. It is even busier on the third Saturday in September, when the Port Festival is concluded with numerous activities. If you want to introduce your children to all the splendor of the Netherlands, Kinderdijk is a must to visit.
