    Boat tour from Rotterdam to Kinderdijk

    by ATLC Updated Feb 13, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There's a boat tour leaving from Rotterdam centre to Kinderdijk.
    Amsterdam-Rotterdam Central Station is an hour by train. Then take the metro (Erasmusline) direction Spijkenisse. 3rd stop is Leuvehaven from where the boat leaves.

    For train schedules: www.ns.nl (English link at the top).
    More information about the tour at the link below (in English).

    The schedules for 2013 are not yet known. I am getting in touch with the boat company and will update this tip accordingly with their information.

    To get to Kinderdijk from Utrecht you need to take regional bus 90. The busstop is opposite the Beatrix theatre in Utrecht. You can buy your ticket on the bus or at the kiosk in Centraal Station. I suggest you get it on the bus rather.

    You can easily arrive in Kinderdijk by taking the bus. I took a bus from Dordrecht, but I believe they also depart from Rotterdam.

    The bus travel is long and a little boring, and the sights are not so good, but trust me, it's well worth it! Kinderdijk is an incredible place.

    Biking along the windmills, the absolute best way

    by Pavlik_NL Written Jan 27, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walking the distnace or biking along

    If you have a bike and you are able to visit this area on it, then this is the absolute best way to see this Dutch "monument valley" (okay, call it a polder). There are several routes leading to this place, but the most well-known is the ANWB "Steden-route".

    Long distance walkingpaths are also having the Kinderdijk windmills in their programm.

    An original way to get to the windmills

    The fastferry running along the dikes of the Noord

    Kinderdijk is surrounded by water. North of it the mainstream of the Rhine, here called the "Lek" and just West the wide waters of the "Noord". From Rotterdam there is a fast ferry going to the kays near Ridderkerk and from here one could take two busses to Kinderdijk (first to Alblasserdam, next to Kinderdijk). The windmills can be reached by foot from Alblasserdam as well.

    Trips to Kinderdijk (from Rotterdam)

    The windmills can be visited by organised tours

    There are touristic trips to Kinderdijk from many central touristic places in The Netherlands, but especially from nearby Rotterdam. From here in the high season (summertime) busloads of tourists are dropped for an hour or little more near the windmills to take a few shots and then hop in the bus back to the city.

    To get to these magnificent mills only a few turns

    Kinderdijk is only a off-ramp away from the freeway that runs between Arnhem/Nijmegen and Rotterdam (the East-West A15) and thus a short detour on travel through The Netherlands. Just follow the signs to Kinderdijk and an extra sign with windmills will appear.

    Only two ways.........

    walking between the windmills

    There are only two ways to explore Kinderdijk: on foot or on Bicycle.

    Most tourist just hop out of their car or bus, take a few pictures, visit one windmill and get back in their bus again.

    I would advice to take your time and take a long walk or bikeride through the area. There are a lot of excellent bicycle paths and nature walking paths here. Get a route map at the local tourist office and GO!

    For a better track with great scenery you could not ask for. A lot of people were cycling around on both sides of the canals.
