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.
