Windmill Kinderdijk, Netherlands, UNESCO World Heritage Site - 3625 POTD

The Netherlands is famous for its windmills. Today there are still more than 1.000 mills. Nowhere in the world you will find as many windmills as near (the Dutch village) Kinderdijk. Around 1740 no less than 19 sturdy mills were built here. They have been well preserved to the present day.

Kinderdijk is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
