UNESCO World Heritage Kinderdijk

The Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage site is a unique icon of Dutch water management and control. All the phases of the history of our struggle against water are still visible here. The unique collection of 19 mills in an authentic Dutch landscape is an eye catcher. Museum windmill Nederwaard shows how families lived and worked in our mills around 1900. And in Museum windmill Blokweer you can experience working as a miller. View our multi-screen film in the Visitors Centre, located in the former steam-driven pumping station. Get on board of our electric vessel, the Prince Friso, and view Kinderdijk from the water. Feel the wind, smell the water and listen to the sound of the windmills. The Kinderdijk World Heritage site is open almost the entire year!

The landscape of all 19 windmills is breathtaking! The welcome center video was informative and prepared you for your journey. The walkway is very good, be prepared to walk A LOT! But it is very worth it! Getting to go into 2 windmills, one that is working is an unforgettable experience. I'm very grateful I was able to experience this history.

Huis Van Gijn

Reviewed By Robert H - Dordrecht, The Netherlands

Some of Holland's gentry, tradesmen, bankers, apparantly could compete with say contemporary Italian nobles. Here you can see what their house in Holland looked like. How to enjoy wealth when your calvinistic Dutch mentality tells you not to show off and you do not have a family owned castle? Here is the answer.

Hier vandaag geweest erg leerzaam en leuk in het lokaal geweest waar de capitulatie is getekend door generaal Winkelman .In de oude schoolbanken gezeten. In het Planetarium de sterrenhemel en het bombardement van Rotterdam gezien. Een tijdreis naar de maan gemaakt en ook nog een leuke rondvaart over het Waaltje gemaakt. Als u in Rijsoord of in de omgeving bent een aanrader.

not too crowded but very well balanced wellness area. Good spacey saunas with good variety on temperatures and types of heat. Missing some good Aufguß opportunities in the hotter saunas. Great place to just come for a decent round of sauna and good restaurant with nice specials.

Grote Kerk

Reviewed By BenYorkie - Malaysia

Why has it taken us 30+ years to visit Dordrecht and discover the delights and charms of the old city centre. It's a wonderful city with a rich history and there is a really inspiring time just strolling around the old streets, squares and canals to soak in the atmosphere and learn a little of the history here.
And the Grote Kerk is one of the most splendid buildings in Dordrecht - an icon, Magnificent in both its interior and exterior. We were intrigued by the size of the structure and wondered how they managed to get in the foundations for such a huge building in what must be difficult sub-soils. Any way - they did it and we all can visit this great church. Try the top of the tower as well - magnificent views.

Huis Sonneveld

Reviewed By Katrien S - Ghent, Belgium

Located very close to the Boymans van Beuningen museum, it is well worth a visit if you are interested in architecture or interior design. The house was designed for one of the directors of the van Nelle factory, his wife and 2 daughters. It is set up as a grand villa, with bedrooms for 2 maids, a studio for the 2 daughters to study, and several large and interconnected rooms. Although the architects did not design the furniture, they did decide upon the furniture that was to be used in the house. Most of that furniture is still present, the original or a replica. Build in 1933, the house is full of technological novelties. Make sure to aks for the free audio guide, as you will see much more as well as hear the reasoning behind several colours.

Reviewed By Willemvd - Barendrecht, The Netherlands

For over 15 years Het Kruispunt is home for our local drama group twice a year. Theatre offers a huge variation of professional programs during the season and we love to go there as much as we can. With about 500 seats it is offers a very familiar size which is very close to stage. We often meet with actors at afterparty.
Free parking in front at walking distance.
