This week we paid a family visit to Kinderdijk. UNESCO gave this place a World Heritage status. There are 19 old typical Dutch windmills to see and visit.
But stopping for a cup of coffee at the local restaurant Buena Vista gave us also a radio surprise. The owner of this restaurant showed a nice collection of antique broadcast receivers.
Of course I also want to show some photos of this unique place with the typical Dutch Windmills that for many years made sure we had dry feet and were not flooded by the water.
Kinderdijk windmills: unique & iconic water management
A significant part of Holland is situated up to approximately 7 meters below sea level. The Dutch don’t notice any of this though, because an incredibly innovative and intricate system keeps the ever-rising seawater from flooding the land. Even during spring tide, the Dutch are safely guarded from being washed away…
The most important aspect of UNESCO World Heritage Kinderdijk is undoubtedly the unique collection of 19 authentic windmills, which are considered a Dutch icon throughout the entire world. A wonderful and unforgettable day trip in the Netherlands for the entire family!
