Kinderdijk The Essential
Recommended
Kinderdijk means the "child's dyke". It is said that, at the time of the Great Flood of St Elizabeth in 1421, the sea deposited on the dyke a cradle containing a crying infant and a cat. On the way out of the village, a gap between the houses to the right gives you a pretty view over fifteen or so windmills which are spread across the plain.
