Several enthousiastic -profesionnal- volunteers run the mill as in the "old days". Also on these days the shop is open to buy products produced in the mill. You can even... More

We were very surprised at how pretty Spakenberg is, especially around the windmill. Sadly the mill was not open (open on Wednesday, apparently). Very nice cafe attached though.

You can explore all areas which in UK I suspect would be H&S cordoned off so if young child be aware. There is a restaurant attached but go on market day and enjoy the... More
