Kinderdijk by ALL means. It's much more natural, the mills were really built on that spot and even served 60 years ago when due to WW2 petrol (for the new diesel pumps) was unavaible. ZS is not bad but still 'artificial', most of the mills were moved to there from other places. And also you need to be careful not to look in the wrong direction, then immediately you're confronted with industry and other modern stuff; for Kinderdijk this of course exists but is more at a distance.

All the best,

ZS for me. The Kinderdijk is nice as as it was from 300 years ago but there is much more to see at ZS and from Amsterdam it is much easier to get to.
