We originally were going to bike to Kinderdijk, however they say to just follow the river. Well most rivers are not straight so when we finally found the correct bridge to go over it seemed just too long to attempt on day one in Europe.
So day 2 we take the waterbus, what a good idea!
Not only is it relaxing, but you get to see the landscape from the water and observe the harbor activities. We actually take the 9 30am waterbus and were told the second ferry to Kinderdijk will not start till 10 30 am and they suggested we take the next bus. We however decide the take the 9 30 am bus and just wait at the transfer site. This was such a good idea, it was intriguing to watch the comings and goings along the river and the time went very fast. First transfer ferry arrived on schedule.
We rented bikes at the Kinderdijk for E2 50 an hour and had a wonderful time. Spent 2 hours exploring the area.
We returned, via waterbus, the fare of 12 50 euro for waterbus included, round trip waterbus, the entrance fee into Kinderdijk along with the fare for the 2nd ferry. VERY REASONABLE. Also, did not have to think about biking back to Rotterdam.
You cannot go to the Netherlands and not experience Kinderdijk!
