Get your souvenirs here as you enjoy a drink, a snack and the view
Coming from the direction of the dike, you’ll wind up straight at the doors of the Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage Visitors Centre. Here you can purchase your tickets and souvenirs, enjoy a drink and a bite to eat, and take in the sweeping views while you’re at it.
The Visitors Centre is the place to get your entry tickets and tour boat tickets. At the reception room, our volunteers are happy to see you off to a good start! Hop into the movie box and watch the fact-packed introductory film about the Kinderdijk windmill complex and the unique water management system that it is part of.
Take a moment to unwind in the restaurant area. Rest your feet as you enjoy a nice cup of coffee, an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage, or a freshly prepared sandwich as you look out over the mills. When the weather is good, the stunning outdoor terrace above the water offers an excellent place to take a break. On the ground floor, you’ll also find a souvenir shop full of gifts and (sustainable) products sthat represent Holland and the Kinderdijk spirit. You’ll find the toilets if you go down the stairs inside the souvenir shop. Our special needs toilets and baby care rooms are located next to the restaurant area.
As you make your way through the Visitors Centre, make sure to take a quick look upstairs and enjoy a phenomenal view of the entire windmill complex! Our Visitors Centre opened its door in 2019, as an integral part of the broader redevelopment of the Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage entrance zone.
