You’ll find 19 windmills during your trip to Unescco World Heritage Kinderdijk
With the ditches, dikes, pumping engines, locks and water basins or drainage pools,
the Dutch windmills here are the model of Dutch water management.
About 600 years ago, from the 15th century, the windmills were set up for drainage.
Their paddle wheels would pump the water from the lower to the higher areas.
