Kinderdijk Netherlands - On the second day we visited Kinderdijk to see the awesome windmills.  Kinderdijk is a village in the Netherlands about 15 km east of Rotterdam. Kinderdijk is situated at the confluence of the Lek and Noord rivers. To drain the polder, a system of 19 windmills was built around 1740. This group of mills is the largest concentration of old windmills in the Netherlands.
