On your bike TO Kinderdijk
Cycling – the ultimate Dutch way to get to our Word Heritage. Kinderdijk might not be Rome, but still many bicycle roads lead to our windmill area. From Rotterdam, Dordrecht, Gouda, and Utrecht, you can safely pedal to our windmills, thanks to our excellent bicycle paths. On top of that, you can take the Waterbus from Rotterdam or Dordrecht and discover the surroundings of Kinderdijk on your bike. Here’s our little Dutch insider’s tip: no extra charge for your bike on board the Waterbus! Do not forget to buy an entrance ticket online for access to our visitor locations!

Bicycle routes AROUND Kinderdijk
Kinderdijk is a pivot in a web of excellent bicycle routes. A nice start or end of a day of cycling fun through the Alblasserwaard and surroundings. Take your two wheels along so-called ‘Tiendwegen’ (regional paths with ditches on either side) and other beautiful bicycle paths where cars are the exception rather than the rule. Ride them dikes with the river on one side and the lowlands on the other side. You see so much more when you ride a bicycle. In our app ‘Kinderdijk UNESCO Official’ you can find various cycling routes around our World Heritage Site.
Travelling by Waterbus is the perfect way to visit us by public transport. From Rotterdam or Dordrecht, half an hour’s sailing will get you to Kinderdijk in style!Plan your trip
