This is my favorite place in Netherlands. Today there are still more than 1.000 mills. Nowhere in the world you will find as many windmills as near Kinderdijk. Around 1740 no less than 19 sturdy mills were built here. They have been well preserved to the present day. Interesting, isn’t it?

🙂 thank you
Nice photographs, the little contrast in 0054 & 67 are eye catching 😀
🙂 thank you.
We have windmills and very flat land with water around them in Norfolk, (Britain) where I live, it looks like these pictures! Many people from Holland arrived in Norfolk in the 1700’s and built their windmills all over the Norfolk countryside! How strange two different countries can look so alike in certain areas! 😀
🙂 I believe you. But I never was in Britain.
Reblogged this on Spiritual challenges .
Ah yeah, De Kinderdijk, pretty typical 😉 I love how you choose to only show a part of the windmill in the 5th photo!
Great work! Thank you for sharing!
