We are staying at The Hague and want to spend the day at Kinderdijk. We are hoping to do so on a Sunday in March. What is the best way to get there via train? Are we able to walk to the windmills? Any information would be appreciated! Thank you!
Here is the official website where you can buy tickets and get information on the different ways to get there and other information about the visit
I find the easiest way is to take the train to Dordrecht and from there the bus to Kinderdijk (the bus station is a 2-min walk from the railway station). The public transport planner 9292 will show you the schedules of train and bus (select »Kinderdijk Molens« as destination). Be sure to have a working bank card to pay for the bus. They probably don't accept cash.
On the way back you shouldn't forget to have a look at Dordrecht: a most attractive historical city.
There is no need to buy an entry ticket for Kinderdijk: the area is a public walking and cycling zone. Here is a zoomable map of the area, with the dotted lines foot and cycle paths. The blue squares near the river are the bus stops.
Take a train to Rotterdam. Exit the train station through a door to the left to the tram platform and get a #7 tram to to it's end at the riverfront. Get on the waterbus to go to Kinderdijk, very easy. They took cash and OV Chipkaarts on the waterbus.
In March the Waterbus service doesn't go directly to Kinderdijk, but implies a change to another ferry at Ridderkerk. Very well doable, but not the easiest way.
