Ever since I got to Rotterdam I have been trying to find a good day to go explore Kinderdijk. That day finally came two weeks ago, although the weather was a little cold! From the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam, we took the waterbus straight to Kinderdijk. It was a really cool experience to see the city from the harbor on the boat! We even passed by the Noah’s Arc boat!

After the 30 minute boat ride, we arrived at our stop: Kinderdijk! After checking out the information center where we learned how the windmills worked, we started walking through the area to get a closer look at the windmills. My friends are big on walking, however, there are small canal boats you can ride in as well to see the windmills. There are also some small museums in some the windmills so you can learn about the people who lived there!

It was a cold and windy day, but a wonderful experience at Kinderdijk.
