If you are wondering what to do while staying with us, we can recommend a daytrip to Kinderdijk.
Kinderdijk has been UNESCO World Heritage since 1997 and you won’t find a windmill complex like this anywhere else in the world.
When visiting Kinderdijk, you are thrown back into our Dutch history. The famous windmills of Kinderdijk rise high above the polder landscape of Alblasserwaard. Everything here lies below sea level, so to keep our feet dry we have been cooperating with wind and water for centuries. A thousand years ago this whole area was one big peat bog, trapped between rivers and the sea. Our windmills and waterways tell the story of the low countries. Hunters and fishermen only came here during the summer when the water levels were low enough.
Nowadays visitors from all over the world come here to experience this unique piece of history themselves. The place stands shoulder to shoulder with some of the most famous and most amazing places in the world. The story of Kinderdijk has become a genuine part of world history, kept safe for future generations to visit and experience. If you visit Kinderdijk you will travel back in time and you will experience the story of windmills, water and willpower!
The best way to get to this beautiful place is by bike. You can rent a bike at the hotel and you can safely cycle to the windmills, thanks to our excellent bicycle paths. On top of that, you can take the Waterbus and discover the surroundings of Kinderdijk. Hop on board of the Waterbus and do not forget to buy an entrance ticket online to access the visitor locations! You can take the ferry from Kinderdijk at the Lek!
