  • Enter a real mill and photograph the other 18 from as many angles as you like!

Sailing and sails, all in one day! Step on board a beautiful ship for a guided cruise up the Nieuwe Maas from Rotterdam, into UNESCO World Heritage Site Kinderdijk. Explore the collection of 19 Dutch windmills, learn about the history of harnessing wind, and return to Rotterdam truly cultured.

Sail on to 19 windmills at UNESCO World Heritage Site Kinderdijk!

Hop on board the good ship Nehalennia, built in 1908, for a leisurely cruise up the Nieuwe Maas from central Rotterdam. It'll take about 90 minutes, and you can buy drinks and snacks as you soak up the city views and skyline. Your guide will explain the highlights as you pass them, including those impressive bridges.

Once you reach Kinderdijk, walk about at your own pace and photograph the 19 windmills. Step inside a working mill, learn about the intricate system that keeps the seawater from flooding the Netherlands, and then board the Nehalennia for a relaxing cruise home.

It's escapism at its best. And if you enjoy a couple of beers on the boat, you might learn even more about the wind.

Un paseo a bordo de un barco con historia, ruta con explicaciones de puntos emblemáticos, para llegar a un excepcional paisaje de enormes y bellos molinos. Para mi gusto, a pesar de tener algo más de una hora para disfrutar de una ruta por los molinos, el tiempo se hace corto si quieres entrar en alguno de ellos, hace mete fotos con el paisaje o aprobechar para comprar un subenir.

Leider hat man die Informationen auf dem Weg zum kinderdijk an Bord akustisch nicht verstehen können. An Land war viel zu wenig Zeit für die Erkundung der Mühlen. Die Fahrt an sich war jedoch sehr schön und der Besuch des Ortes auch sehr empfehlenswert.

De vrije tijd in kinderdijk was beperkt. De boot excursie met weetjes over wat er te zien was langs de oevers was voldoende.
