Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage will be closed until April 30

Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage will be closed until April 30. This decision was made by the Kinderdijk World Heritage Foundation (SWEK) in due consultation of the Molenlanden municipal authorities.

By this decision, we fall in line with the measures taken by the national government as of today. One of the measures taken to prevent further spreading of the coronavirus is the cancellation of all gatherings attended by more than 100 people.

By our decision to close all visitor locations for a six-week period, we also provide clarity to any tour operators organising group visits to Kinderdijk. Some of the group reservations planned for the coming period were already cancelled. We hope that we are able to receive these groups at some point later this year.
