To Kinderdijk in a real horsetram
A ride to the windmills on horsepower
Here at Kinderdijk, you can visit our windmills on foot or by tour boat, but we also have an authentic horsetram that takes you along our World Heritage at the calm pace of centuries past. Riding a real classical horsetram among the turning sails is a true adventure for all ages!
Enjoy the pace of centuries past
As you listen to the steady clatter of hooves, you can let your thoughts wander and daydream in our horsetram, which will take you past all of our windmills at the wholesomely calm pace of bygone days. Enjoy a ride in the style of the area and sit back for a Kinderdijk trip that you will not easily forget!
The horse-drawn tram is not bookable via World Heritage Foundation Kinderdijk. For more information please contact Verdoorn Gelegenheidskoeten in Alblasserdam.
