Windmill Day

When there is sufficient wind, as many windmills as possible are operating during Windmill Day.

Annual event

The mill’s milling days are organized for 64 years now. The reason that the mill’s milling days are organized is that all mills are structured and milled simultaneously for a period of time. It is a beautiful sight every year to see as many windmills as possible in operation at the same time. The minimum wind force required to put a mill into its work, and to allow the mill to continue milling days, is from wind force 2-3. The mills will be operation between 13:00 and 17:30 hours.

Is a visit to World Heritage Kinderdijk planned? It is a wonderful sight to see as many rotating windmills as possible at the same time! Hope to see you soon on one of the mill’s milling days!


From wind force 2-3 the mill can be operated on a Windmill Day



The windmills in Kinderdijk are not only a unique sight from the outside. In the museum mills you can discover how the Kinderdijkers used to live here. See, hear and dwell in the mighty beating heart of a mill. Take a leap back in time and let yourself be taken into the story of our prehistory. Children learn in a playful way everything about life in the past. With a ticket you can visit both museum mills and board one of our tour boats. Let the impressive World Heritage slide past you. That’s just enjoying!
