In 1997, the windmill complex of Kinderdijk was added to the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage list because of its unique character.

What people are saying about Kinderdijk

excellent trip

My husband and I were the only people on the trip as all others scheduled did not show. Our trip was terrific. The guide, Bram was knowledgeable, entertaining and competent. I would highly recommend this company. He was on time leaving and returning and allowed enough time at each spot to enjoy the area. If I had a criticism and for most people it would not be a problem, we did not really enjoy the embassy tour in The Hague, (we live in Washington DC area) but that part of tour included the International Court of Justice and the Peace /Justice (high court of Netherlands) Court so it was worth it. Seeing the International Court was a bonus and a building I really appreciated a chance to see.
