Kinderdijk & Rotterdam, a set on Flickr.

There are so many varied photo-opportunities in Rotterdam from the oldest surviving port of Delfshaven to the modern architecture around the Oud Haven; a riot of colour, shape and size.

Around 1740 approximately 19 windmills were built near the Dutch village of Kinderdijk to drain the excess water from the Alblasserwaard polders. They have been well preserved to the present day and in 1997 were put on the World Heritage List by UNESCO. Kinderdijk is (it’s fair to say) a big must for the tourist trail but also presents fantastic photo opportunities.
