Kinderdijk

Nowhere around the world will you discover such a unique place as Kinderdijk. Kinderdijk is the only place in the world where you can find so many windmills concentrated in such a small area, its no doubt Kinderdijk was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list. The Kinderdijk milling complex consists of eight stone brick windmills of the waterboard Nederwaard which were built between 1521 and 1760. Kinderdijk is the final station of the water of the Alblasserwaard and drains the water before it drains in to the river Lek and on to the sea. Since the 1950s the function of the windmills was taken over by the pumping station however in case of emergency the windmills still can be used. No doubt an integral part of Dutch history and their battle against the water.
