Full description
Live the tale of an exciting windmill adventure at UNESCO’s Kinderdijk, and combine it one of the oldest and best-preserved Medieval castles in Holland: Amsterdam Castle Muiderslot. You won’t find a windmill complex like Kinderdijk anywhere else in the world. The ingenious system of mills and pumping stations has kept the soil dry here for almost 1,000 years now, engaged in a constant struggle between human brains and the power of water.

Visit Kinderdijk in a small-group tour of a maximum of 7 travelers and a friendly and professional guide. You will have the opportunity to visit the museum of the windmill and climb the stairs inside. Let the skippers of Kinderdijk carry you across the glittering basin waters, and let your guide show you around and share all sorts of interesting information with you.

Following this, a 1-hour transfer takes you to Amsterdam Muiderslot Castle. A real Medieval castle that's over 700 years old and is complete with a moat, towers, battlements, arrow slits, and a drawbridge. You can live the tale of the castle and discover its secrets with an included tour. You will also have time to explore the beautiful historic gardens before you return back to the city.
