Kinderdijk Molens - Photo by Julian

In the beautiful wetlands around Dordrecht, you will find the windmills of Kinderdijk. Nineteen beautiful windmills, built around 1740, line an intricate system of waterways and dykes to create picturesque views. This ingenious system of windmills and pumping stations have been keeping the soil dry here for centuries. The sustainable blend of nature and technology used to keep Kinderdijk dry is so uniquely valuable that the area and its windmills were granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1997.
