Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage, the largest windmill complex in the world

Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage is the largest windmill complex in the world. Here you can enjoy the nineteen windmills

Kinderdijk shows you how the Dutch have been living, struggling, and working with the water that defines our country. Our famous polders used to be soggy peat bogs, and they would return to that state as soon as we stopped draining these lands. To keep our feet dry, we have been working together in our district water boards for centuries
