What people are saying about Rotterdam

It's a great place, though I went on the day when it was foggy, I couldn't enhoithe real scenic beauty. But this place would give you what the Dutch water management is and how critical and challenging was it to deal with . The old 16th and 17th century windmills are extraordinary and still working to keep the water level at a safe limit. Also the movie of Kinderdijk ( Childern of dykee) is an interesting one. You could also see how ppl used to and live nearby and in the windmills. They are called the " MILLERS" lovely ppl and quite interesting to learn from them

Excellent experience, there are many mills, 2 can be visited, and there are 2 small boats available to make the tour, one without stops with more travel and the other with stops at the mills. Highly recommended. Ps bring something to protect your head from the sun, there are no shaded areas

The Park is very beautiful but the organization is quite bad, they put it as if it were with a guide but they never say where it is picked up or anything

It was a very nice experience. Getting the ticket beforehand really help to immediately enter all the different parts of the place.

Very pleasant area two windmills and s pumping station with attractive walk around area seeing many other windmills.a
