Enjoy a live-guided tour in English, exclusive for your party, and learn about the flower industry.
Continue to visit world heritage site Kinderdijk, the location of a group of 19 authentic windmills which were built to pump up the polder water. Upon arrival, enjoy a walking tour of the area (2 mi) and visit 2 mills. Climb the stairs inside one mill and discover how this medieval engineering works and how a family with 13 children lived in the old days. Meet one of the current millers and ask them anything you'd like to know about milling. The other mill shows how millers and their families lived self-sustainable in the 1950s.
