A short ride from Rotterdam is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the beautiful small village of Kinderdijk. The village has 19 perfectly preserved 18th-century windmills. The area is one of the most visited places in the Netherlands. You can visit the site to watch and enjoy a peaceful picnic, ride a bike and take a boat ride in the canals.
Buying a ticket will let you discover the 3 windmills museums, watch a multi-screen film, see the Wisboom pumping station and sail in the canals along the windmills. You will also get access to audio tours and a map in the Kinderdijk app.
The museums will take you back in time to learn about windmill technology and experience how families lived and worked in the 18th-century.

Rotterdam weather is oceanic. You can expect rainy days all year long. However, the temperature rarely reaches extreme levels.

quick tipRemember to check the weather forecast a few days before the trip and before heading to the airport.

Grab your picnic basket. Just remember that 1rain could catch you all year long so make sure, even in the summer, to pack a light jacket that can also protect you from unexpected rain.
