Windmill Mini-cruise; the never-ending Dutch fight against water…

You couldn’t cram any more sheer Dutchness into this mini-cruise. Tulips, wooden shoes and windmills: this trip has it all. Who would ever expect this modest and somewhat lonesome office building at the waterfront to mark the beginning of a wonderful afternoon? I for sure didn’t.

Here you can board the Nehalennia passenger ship, setting sail at 12 noon every day April thru October (except Mondays). And since the Roman Goddess Nehalennia was the patron saint of sailors, it probably won’t be just the crew looking after you…

Anyways.

Once aboard, you’ll sail through the Maas, New Maas and Lek rivers towards the famous Kinderdijk. Here you’ll have the possibility to get off for a stroll and view the 19 UNESCO World Heritage windmills. This is the Netherlands as we know it from the paintings of the old masters. Unspoilt, typically Dutch countryside: green fields, canals and black-and-white cows as far as the eye can see. See here for yourself how the Dutch have fought the water through the ages. Two hours later, the Nehalennia sets sail again, taking you back into Rotterdam just in time for the cocktail hour. Right on time to chat about all you’ve seen in one of the many pubs and cafes (like on the Witte de Withstraat, Oude Binnenweg) and review your best snaps of the day. Don’t forget to order a portion of ‘bitterballen’ with mustard to make a typically Dutch day even more Dutch!
