The inside story

Included in the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1997, the windmills of Kinderdijk are the most popular Dutch tourist destination. See the only location in the world that houses 19 perfectly functioning windmills, which have been controlling the waters for over 1000 years.

Constructed around 1740 the windmills of Kinderdijk form a complex water pumping system that prevents flooding in the surrounding low-lying land.

Visit the Museummolens (museum mills) and watch the multiscreen movie at the ‘Hulpgemaal De Fabriek’ (auxiliary pumping station). In Nederwaard Museum Mill, discover the life of its former occupants, then enter the Blokweer Museum Mill located inside the oldest mill in Kinderdijk. Finally, explore the area from the water and pass by the mills on a boat tour reaching the Museum Mill Overwaard.

During the national day of the mills (the second Saturday of May) view, Kinderdijk illuminated at night for a truly unique experience.
