The Windmils of Kinderdijk, Netherlands

Kinderdijk is a UNESCO world heritage site comprising of 19 restored Dutch windmills that were used to pump water to a series of ‘boezems’ or storage basins, sluices and ditches to allow land to remain dry so it could be farmed.

The surprise was that there were no entry fees unless you wanted to go into the museum and see the multimedia presentation or take a boat ride.

My tip would be to park some distance away and take your bike and ride in, as parking close is in short supply. The Kinderdijk windmills are spread out over a large area with many bike and walking paths throughout, printing out this map may help you get around.
