Stop & Go zone right on the verge of Kinderdijk World Heritage
Our Stop & Go zone is meant specifically for use by coaches. Here, drivers can let their passengers exit the coach and drive on to the special coach parking in Nieuw-Lekkerland. Parking a coach in the Kinderdijk village is not allowed, to reduce the impact of traffic on local residents.
Coach parking lot
The Stop & Go zone was built in 2017, aiming specifically to accommodate the coaches visiting Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage. Here, coach drivers can drop off their passengers and continue to nearby Nieuw-Lekkerland where they have ample parking space. After completing their visit, passengers can be picked up at the same location. Coaches are not allowed to park in the village of Kinderdijk, as this would increase traffic burdening for residents.
Address and GPS coordinates
Kinderdijk is a small town, with limited options for accommodating heavy traffic. To prevent any congestion or traffic jams, all coaches are required to proceed immediately to the special coach parking facility once their passengers have left the vehicle. This parking facility is located some 3.4 kilometres down the road in Nieuw-Lekkerland, at less than five minutes from the main entrance. Here, drivers can brew some coffee or grab a glass of water as they relax and wait for their passengers. The Nieuw-Lekkerland parking lot is situated on the Veerweg 6. GPS coordinates are as follows:
