Good For Photographs

No entry to the windmill but you get some good photographs of the outside. There is a small cafe/bar there and the food was good and prices reasonable.

We alway's pay this windmill a visit on any trip to Amsterdam not so much as to see the windmill as stunning and cute as it look's but to visit the brewery attached in the former bathouse building. The windmill look's superb and you can alway's tell if some one has been as they ALWAY'S have photo's of the windmill... More

Not exactly sure what the draw is to this windmill, and maybe I expected more. But after a long walk to see this, I was slightly underwhelmed. If you like a quick photo opportunity, great. But there is nothing much else around it and not much else to do once you get to it.

Spending a few days in Amsterdam, felt compelled to see a Windmill. Staying near the Rijksmuseum, I walked along the outer canal ring in an anti clockwise direction until I reached it. There are obviously easier ways to get there, trams, canal boats, taxis etc but enjoyed the walk. The windmill isnt signposted but there are landmarks en route, Heineken... More

Jump on the no.22 (direction Indische Buurt) from the apron in front of Central Station and it is 5 stops to a stop nearby. You can see the windmill approaching to the right. Best viewed seated outside the bar next door.

Really wanted to see a windmill and this one was the closest to our area. Very beautiful and impressive structure. If you go all the way across town, do try the beers at the brewery right next to the windmill

Wanted to see a Windmill whilst in the Netherlands and this was the closest to our hotel so we decided to go. It is a couple of metres walk from a tram stop and just across the road from it. You cannot go inside the Windmill but there is a bar and restaurant next door which seemed busy so you... More

You do not get to see it or see how it works. To find a working windmill, you have to get outside the city. This one has a microbrewery adjacent to it, so after you've made the trek out to it, you can relax and have a beer and snack. The zoo is about 1-2 blocks south of it between... More

I had pinned the De Gooyer Windmill as a must in Amsterdam as I did not want to miss one of their windmills and this was accessible by public transportation. That day was cold and raining and probably that influences my opinion but I think this is not the best windmill in the Netherlands and it is quite far from... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
