Full description
Tour a windmill complex unlike any other on a day trip to Kinderdijk. On arrival, watch a brief introductory movie about Kinderdijk and learn about its fascinating history. After the movie, walk with your guide to two museum mills, where you will have the opportunity to meet the millers still living in the surrounding mills and learn about their trade. Climb the stairs inside one of the mills and see for yourself how water and wind are being harnessed to operate the mill. Chat with the friendly millers who are happy to answer any questions that you may have about their trade. Head back to the visitor centre, from which you'll head out across the glittering waters of Kinderdijk on a boat ride with the local skippers. You will be dropped off at the same place you started the tour.
