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.
A course across the water
At Kinderdijk World Heritage, everything revolves around the water; including the best ways to get there. If you hop aboard the Waterbus in Rotterdam or Dordrecht, you’ll find yourself standing between the mills in just about half an hour – and you’ll get there in style too!
The smartest move for anyone visiting Kinderdijk by Waterbus and the Driehoeksveer ferry is to buy an all-in-one ticket. You can purchase these all-in-one tickets either online or onboard the Waterbus.
There is no direct connection to Kinderdijk from Rotterdam or Dordrecht between November 1th and April 30th. If you plan to use Waterbus Line 20, you will have to transfer to the Driehoeksveer ferry at the stop in Ridderkerk. All in all, the trip from Dordrecht or Rotterdam will take about forty minutes. This is not possible during the weekends! An alternative point to get off board on Saterday and Sunday is at the Kade stop in Alblasserdam: from there, it’s just fifteen minutes to Kinderdijk by bicycle.
