I’ve read in many places that Kinderdijk is the best place to see windmills. Have also read in earlier post that Zaanse Schans is an option but so crowded because of close proximity to Amsterdam. Time is not an issue since we will be in Haarlem 5 nights plus 4 nights in Amsterdam. Traveling in May. Is it worth the distance from Haarlem to go to Kinderdijk?
To visit Kinderdijk from Haarlem, it looks like I take train to Rotterdam Centraal (58 min/0 transfers) and then walk 1 mile to waterbus 202 at Erasmus Bridge which goes to Kinderdijk (28 minutes). I'm assuming I catch watertaxi back to Rotterdam? Has anyone taken the boat tour from Rotterdam? Although a little more expensive is it worth extra to see windmills from boat tour versus watertaxi? Is it best to reserve in advance?
Should I allow a full day for Kinderdijk or can I include Delft in this day trip?
