Take the best route to Kinderdijk across the water
Nothing beats making a trip to the windmills by water, and the best way to do that is by using the Waterbus. Take your bicycle with you as you hop on board in Rotterdam or Dordrecht, and set sail for Kinderdijk while you enjoy the stunning views of the rivers that made Holland what it is today.
At Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage, everything revolves around the water. Hop aboard the Waterbus – a form of public transport- for a beautiful boat trip to the windmills. Bring your bike for free! These are the options:
Anyone traveling from Rotterdam and Dordrecht with Line 20 to Kinderdijk by Waterbus has two options for a large part of the year:
With Line 20 from Rotterdam or Dordrecht, change at the Schans stop in Ridderkerk to the ‘Driehoeksveer‘. From there you are in Kinderdijk within a few minutes. Please note: the ‘Driehoeksveer’ is not part of the Waterbus, you will need to buy a separate ticket here.
Stop at Kade Alblasserdam
Only if you bring a bike with you, disembarking at the stop Kade in Alblasserdam is an option. From there it is a fifteen minute bike ride to the entrance of the windmill area.
Line 202 (summer holiday)
During six weeks of summer holiday (19 July to 30 August 2021) you will sail with Line 202 from the center of Rotterdam and Dordrecht directly to Kinderdijk. You will arive right at the entrance to the windmill area within half an hour. Ideal!
