Kinderdijk is a village in the municipality of Molenlanden, in the province of South Holland, Netherlands.
It is located about 15 km (9 miles) east of Rotterdam. Kinderdijk is situated in the Alblasserwaard polder at the confluence of the Lek and Noord rivers.

To drain the polder, a system of 19 windmills was built around 1740.
This group of mills is the largest concentration of old windmills in the Netherlands.
The windmills of Kinderdijk are one of the best-known Dutch tourist sites.
They have been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1997.
