Visitors Centre

Get your souvenirs here as you enjoy a drink, a snack and the view

Coming from the direction of the dike, you can’t miss the Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage Visitors Centre. Here, our staff stand ready to help you on your way. You can also enjoy the breath-taking view or a drink and a bite to eat here.

The Visitors Centre, opened in 2019 by princess Beatrix, is also you go-to place to find the best classic Dutch souvenirs. Due to the Covid-19 measures, restrictions apply to all spaces in the building. One of these restrictions is our decision to stop selling entry tickets at the cash register. Aleways follow the instructions of our staff!

Outdoor terrace

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.

View

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.
