In order to get to Kinderdijk, the best transport is to take the waterbus from Rotterdam (Erasmus bridge). It is quick amd cheap.

Great, leisurely way to get to far-flung parts of the Rotterdam area (including Kinderdijk) for a nice price and convenience. Think of the best bus service you've been on, make it better, AND put it on the water of a modern yet uncrowded European city.

Taking the route 202 really saves much time from Rotterdam to Kinderdijk. Since it is a water route on a river, do not expect heavy waves or bumpy rides being with the journey.

We took the waterbus to visit Kinderdijk, we were lucky enough to catch the early afternoon waterbus in order to get back before sunset. The service was comfortable and well balanced. The trip was not long but we enjoyed the view along the coastline. However...More

We parked our car in Krimpen a/d/ Ijssel, sufficient free parking in the area. In addition, there is at that stop also a nice place to have a cup of coffee, a piece of apple pie
