The most well-known symbol of the Netherlands

Kinderdijk - The village of Kinderdijk is one of the highlights of the Netherlands. It's probably the most archetypal of all Dutch scenes. Kinderdijk is located at the crossing of 2 rivers, close to Rotterdam. It's the ideal place to see how the Dutch won land from the water and to get a feeling of living below sea level.
