Windmills are an essential part of the Dutch landscape and responsible for keeping half the country above water. Kinderdijk, a tiny village located on a strip of land between the Lek and Noord Rivers, is one of the most picturesque and iconic sights in all of Holland. With the largest concentration of operational windmills- 19 of them, dating from the 14th century- it has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and remains a major tourist attraction.
