The best job in the world at our World Heritage
In Kinderdijk, over two hundred volunteers do an outstanding job every single day. Voluntary millers, hosts and hostesses, guides, cashiers, skippers, maintenance and shop volunteers; all local people, with regional knowledge. They are the backbone of this World Heritage. We are as proud of them as they are of Kinderdijk.
Showing the Netherlands to the world
Our volunteers think it’s wonderful to support Kinderdijk in all respects. They thoroughly enjoy guiding, informing, and contacting people from all over the globe.
Apart from their daily duties, our volunteers are also very much involved behind the scenes of KinderdijkWorld Heritage . Their qualities are put to good use in all sorts of fields. They advise our organisation on aspects such as training, strategy and much more besides. Our Volunteer Policy was devised in close cooperation with them. Once a year, our volunteers choose a Volunteer Council from their midst.
Kinderdijk is the place to be for working with great people at a fantastic location.

Volunteer to be a volunteer?
Interested to help out? Do you have time to spare and a willingness to show ‘your’ Windmill Wonderland to the world? Do you appreciate the importance of preserving the Kinderdijk windmills for the future? You want to get involved in Kinderdijk matters? Want to be a part of a close family of volunteers? Looking for colleagues you will like? Do you want to explain to the rest of the world why this country is so special and why it’s fun to live behind dikes?
I cannot put to words how much I enjoy informing people from all corners of the world.
Hans, Volunteer Kinderdijk
