What people are saying about Kinderdijk

Unforgettable, it is a landscape that you cannot see anywhere else, to do absolutely! A word of advice: the activities of the park close at 5 p.m. but the park remains open to the public

Brilliant experience - both with the booking itself as well as the actual Kinderdijk site.

Too bad that in Holland we don't have more explanations or documents in French!

Spectacular. Better to leave the car at the first parking lot and enjoy a ride

A must do if you are in the area! For young and old!
