Kinderdijk - The Netherlands

The windmills of Kinderdijk seems to be one of the best known Dutch Unesco whs. Here you can see 2 diferent cards of the same place on diferent seasons.

This card was sent by Jeroen.

And this one by Roos.

"Kinderdijk is in a polder at the confluence of the rivers Lek and Noord. 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." - in wikipedia.
