By car

Kinderdijk lies between Dordrecht and Rotterdam

Travelling by car is by no means the ideal way of getting to Kinderdijk. Still, if you have no other options, check out our parking facilities here.

Our address is Nederwaard 1, 2961 AS Kinderdijk.

The number of parking spaces near the entrance to Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage is severely limited. Our advice to you: use the Waterbus! Travelling by public transport across the water is not only fun, cheap, and convenient; it’s also a very Dutch way of moving around the country. If you absolutely need to use your car to get here, be warned: we only have about 50 parking spaces available near the entrance to the windmill area – and all of those are paid parking spaces, too.

Parking fares are 5 euros for cars, and 2.50 euros for motorbikes.

Weekend

On Saturdays, Sundays, and a number of Dutch holidays, the parking facilities of the Royal IHC shipyard is open to tourist vehicles. Address: Smitweg 6 Kinderdijk. From there, you can walk over to the windmill area entrance in just about ten minutes. Parking is free here as well.

Due to Covid-19 measures, part of UNESCO World Heritage Kinderdijk is closed during our opening hours, therefore it is not possible to cycle past all of the mills during the day.
