Kinderdijk : Michelin's recommendations


Kinderdijk means the "child's dyke". It is said that, at the time of the Great Flood of St Elizabeth in 1421, the sea deposited on the dyke a cradle containing a crying infant and a cat. On the way out of the village, a gap between the houses to the right gives you a pretty view over fifteen or so windmills which are spread across the plain.
