The ferry to Kinderdijk was always popular with my children.We used to walk to the wind mills when the children were little. I even went there when the youngest was lying in the pram and his sisters were five and two. They were always excited to be on that ferry. It takes a few minutes to cross the river Lek. When I have visitors I always walk with them to Kinderdijk.
In a country with so much water like ours, we need ferries and bridges. Somehow I prefer ferries, because there is so much to see on the river.
Our Dutch ferries are but small in comparison to those we need to travel to Great Britain or Scandinavia. Besides the Dutch ferries need only a short time to cross a river and not more than half an hour to travel to one of the islands.
