Getting Here and Around in Kinderdijk
Getting Here and Around
It is a bit of a trek (2½ hours) from Amsterdam, and there are a number of ways to go. The most straightforward route is to head for Rotterdam Zuid on the train. From there, take the metro to Rotterdam Zuidplein, then the No. 190 bus to Alblasserdam. By car, Kinderdijk is 20 km (12½ miles) from Rotterdam. Follow directions to Rotterdam, then take the A15 to exit 22. There are (small) car parks by the mills. Waterbus (www.waterbus.nl) runs a fast ferry service from the Erasmusbrug in Rotterdam to Ridderkerk, and then you change onto another ferry to pop across to Kinderdijk. Ferries are every half hour and the trip takes about half an hour. Other tour boats are available from Rotterdam, and there is also (a pricey) water taxi.
