It was the only windmill we saw in Holland so we were thrilled to see this iconic and beautiful site. It was a perfect site for pictures since we could take pictures from the bridge with the windmill across the water. Short walk from the center of town(Grote Markt)

When you are staying in Haarlem or just visiting De Molen Adriaan is a great place to get you windmill fix. Knowledgable and excited about windmills staff take you on a tour from top to bottom. You have to be able to climb stairs and ladders which is the only disadvantage of this attraction. Whne you are done there is... More

This was an excellent museum and windmill tour. The windmill is a replica of the original one that burned. We went on a Saturday and saw the mill in operation. A video was shown to provide background on the mill then we we were taken on a guided tour through the mill. There were many interesting exhibits about windmills in... More

Our tour of the mill and its museum was fantastic. We climbed stairs to each level of the mill where the guide explained several types of windmill and showed how each worked. Fabulous find!

It's a beautifully restored windmill. We arrived late in the evening and we got amazing sunset pictures from the opposite shore. Great landscape, it felt truly Dutch

Fortuntely, our experience with children (10 and 12) was a good one. The tour was informative, affordable and very interesting.

We had a very informative tour by an English speaking guide, whilst the sails turned outside! Although mills are inherently dangerous, the tour was comprehensive, and key moving components made safe for visiting groups. It was fascinating to learn about the mill, and milling in the Netherlands in general, with the use of scale models and videos. There was plenty... More

Windmill did not open until 12am on Sunday so I visited from outside and looked around the canals, it was fairly close to the rivercruise.

We stopped at the windwill to have a quick look... not knowing a thing about them and an hour later we emerged with a real understanding of their history, structure and operational uses. A really informative guide took us around the outside and inside of the reconstructed windwill with an infectious enthusiasm for telling us how everything worked, which was... More
