It was a beautiful day and the Molen De Adriaan looked fantastic. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable and very friendly. Being a museum, you will learn everything you would want to know about the history and functioning of windmills. But you will also learn a lot about the history of Haarlem. A nice choice while visiting the fantastic town... More

Quintessentially Dutch! Haarlem is a beautiful city, and this Molen is not to be missed! There is a museum and a guided tour that cost three euro fifty cents.

Tulips, clogs and windmills. Well, here's one on the bench of the river that used to be Haarlem's landmark until destroyed in fire in 1932. The new one was rebuilt in 2002, so nothing original here, but hey, people are having fun at plastic mountains of Disneyland, so why not taking a walk here and enjoy the lovely scenery and... More

Climb to the top of this working mill in Haarlem and learn from experts how millers supported their towns using custom tools and strong muscles. This windmill is great attraction not to be missed! I'm so glad we made time for a tour among the many attractions there are to see and do in The Netherlands.

I visited more than 5 molens in the netherlands, and this one was not the most special. I don't think that you should pay to get inside and see only how it works and read a little of the history. If you really want to, check that days that the visiting is for free. The molen is beautiful from outside... More

We had decided we would visit the windmills at Zaanse Schans but saw this windmill on our visit to Haarlem. This windmill is beautiful from the outside and we enjoyed watching it while having a cold drink in the cafe next to it.

We had a most interesting visit of this windmill. We had a great guide (a woman and wish I had taken her name down). She very informative, knowledgable and passionate about windmills in general. She gave us a history not just of windmills but about Haarlem and Amsterdam too, and took us to the the top for a great view... More

Sunny Sunday lunchtime in Haarlem with my family and my 6 year old asks if we can see the inside of the windmill. Sure. So we go in, pay our very reasonable entrance fee and expect a quick explanation plus cursory glance at the sails going round. Not a bit of it! Our guide, Peter, first sat us down with... More

We came to Haarlem to visit the Corrie Ten Boom house, but had to wait a while for the tour. So we pottered over to the windmill. We found the history and miniature models fascinating, and seeing the mill's history and the rebuilding was a tribute to the volunteers who rebuilt it. It is worth a visit to Haarlem if... More
