Amazing dutch village with ancient windmills all around the place. The best part is that there is no entry fee. You only pay for services you use like washrooms, boat trips etc. Great place to shoot some amazing pictures. Public transport bus is also available...More

From our hotel in Rotterdam, we took a mid morning tram and bus (about an hour) to see the windmills. Although the weather was blustery, we thoroughly enjoyed our boat ride to the first windmill stop as the skipper/guide presented great historical background on the...More

I recommend the bicycling tour that makes a big circle around 19 windmills. It was really interesting, the weather was great and our guide was very knowledgeable! We went inside one of the windmills and learned how they work and their function.

We rented our bikes outside, bought online tickets to save 1 euro/head. Basically you can go in to the compound without tickets and it's already nice. But if you're interested to see the inside of the windmills, then get the tickets, it's worth it :)
