This windmill is quite a sight to see. It is much bigger than it looks in the pictures and it is an absolutely amazing structure. When you think of Holland, you might think of windmills which makes this huge windmill so iconic.

Riekermolen is one of the 8 windmills that you can find in amsterdam though all is not in the city centre. This windmill lays along the amstel river and just outside the amstel park. It's a 'polder' mill. A family lives in this windmill so you can only walk around the mill and take pictures. You can find the statue... More

The Rickermolen is located just outside the Amstelpark and across the Amstelland, it is apparently the only windmill left in Amsterdam and built in 1636. It is a bit off the normal tourist areas but close to the Amsterdam Zuid business area, closest train station will be the Amsterdam Rai - then a nice walk through the Amstelpark. Definitely worth...

Great to see windmill houses though not much are left around in sight in Holland. They are a trademark representing Holland and it will be a pity if these houses no longer relevant in the modern society.

Visited this windmill during a "joy ride tour". It is the only windmill in amsterdam and was build in 1636 and moved to its current location in 196. Today it is some ones residence. People who want to live in windmills must go through a training program. Then they have to wait on a waitinglist, which could takes several years... More
