When I came to the windmill kingdom in the Netherlands, it was natural to see a windmill. The children's dike windmill village we went to was on the outskirts of Rotterdam, and it took about an hour by train from Rotterdam to Intercity. If you think that there are too many people in the village of Giethoorn, it is recommended to come here. There are not many tourists in the Windmill Village, and there are 19 historic 17th century windmills in the village that have become world heritage sites. Come here, rent a bike to explore and ride the children's dike windmill. When we went, we just happened to run into a group of foreigners. After buying a ticket to enter the Windmill Village, you can also enter the inside of several famous windmills, and you will see the imprint of life left by the former windmill owner and his family.

How to get there: From Rotterdam to Kinderdijk, take the tram to Zuidplein at the Central Railway Station, then transfer to Bus No. 154

Kinderdijk's children's dike windmills consist of 19 huge windmills. These former drainage heroes were built in 1740. They were originally built to discharge stagnant water below the low-lying areas of the sea level, with wind. The principle promotes the runner to let the water drain, so that the surface is not flooded and protects the life of the early residents. Now, here is the place for people to enjoy the scenery, appreciate this special architecture and feel the relaxed country style of the Netherlands. The advancement of science and technology has made the windmills have lost their original functions. In the early days of the Netherlands, the number of windmills was as high as 10,000, but now there are only about one thousand left, and the number of windmills in the children's dike is the most dense. This unique Dutch landscape deserves to be protected and is therefore included in the World Cultural Heritage.

Into the windmill village, in an instant, it was infected by the beautiful scene in front of you. Under the blue sky and white clouds, the dense grasses decorate the earth into a green scene. The windmills in the distance are arranged in turn. As the breeze dances freely, it looks like a picture of pastoral poetry.
In addition to the freely rotating windmill, the town is equally charming, and the quaint and elegant wooden house is simple and rich in aristocratic temperament. The two are intertwined with the green grass, and the romantic scene is extraordinarily charming. Walking along the narrow path of the Windmill Village, everything looks incredibly comfortable.

The Dutch said that Rotterdam is in the Netherlands, just like New York is in the United States. I can't see the old houses that are common in Europe. Although the German World War II bombs blew up the entire city, it quickly became a post-modern art capital after the war. Renting a bicycle to hang out on the street is the best way to get into the city. However, it should be noted that the bicycles here are all foot brakes, do not easily rewind the wheel.
In the Kunsthal Museum (4-6) in Rotterdam, you can see a series of interesting modern art exhibitions. My favorite is the photography exhibition called "Surf Tribe". A vivid portrait of a surfer, it seems that there is a moving story behind each face. No one in the surfers' tribe is the leader, and the sea is their chief.
Come to the Netherlands must not miss the food, seafood must be right. In such a dairy-developed country, never let go of the cheeses that are full of flavors.
Rotterdam, Netherlands. This modern artistic city of Netherlands holds an amazing history. This city was completely destroyed during the world war 2 and completely built form a scratch. Hence, different than any other european cities I have visited, this city architectural designs are all modern style. Love the atmosphere and the arts here. #merrychristmas
Have you been to the Netherlands 🇳🇱? Last October was my very first time in the country. Strange right, considering that I am from France and I could technically just hop on a 2 hour train to get here. But I made my way there all the way from New York, and decided to go for something a little different and off the beaten path. Instead of going to the very popular capital city of Amsterdam, I opted for the neighboring city of Rotterdam. This city, which is the second largest city in Holland, turned out to be just what I had hoped for: a lovely European vibed place, with houses and buildings from the old architectural style to the modern skyscrapers. Did you know, Rotterdam is the biggest port in the continent? 🛳
