A visit to Kinderdijk gives you the extraordinary opportunity to visit a UNESCO World Heritage site in Holland. In 1997, the windmill complex of Kinderdijk was added to the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage list because of its unique character. UNESCO considers the polder area with its dykes, mills and pumping stations to be proof of human inventiveness in reclaiming and protecting the land. This is worldwide recognition of the fact this vulnerable area must be preserved for the future.
At arrival in Kinderdijk your personal guide will take you to the visitor center, situated in an old pumping station. Watch the film about the Kinderdijk area before walking through the area. If possible, you will visit a working windmill from the inside (depending on how busy it is).
After a 90 minute visit, it's back aboard the minivan and onto The Hague. In addition to being the seat of the Dutch government, this city is also the home of the Dutch royal family and the third largest city in the country. The Hague is where most foreign embassies in the Netherlands are located, as well as 150 international organizations, including the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court. It is also the home of the Peace Palace, a number of royal palaces, the Mauritshuis (featuring work by Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Andy Warhol among others), and the Binnenhof (the Dutch parliament).
At arrival in The Hague, you will do a city tour in a minivan to see all these highlights and a stop will be made for lunch before enjoying free time at the Mauritshuis; home to the best Dutch paintings from the Golden Age. Discover masterpieces such as Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring and paintings by the famous Rembrandt van Rijn. Enjoy an included audio tour. In the late afternoon, you will return back to Amsterdam.
