I hadn't intended actually going round the windmill interior as I am not happy with steep steps but it was well worth the effort. Our tour guide was a wonderful woman who kept us informed and entertained throughout - so glad I went.

A very picturesque location, the mill is staffed by volunteers. There is a place to eat next door. The video is also very interesting, although it has an irritating 'fast forward' sequence which could do with being edited out. Nice views from the top. I understand it is also a wedding venue and there is a panoramic view of old... More

The place is small and led by volunteers. The entrance fee is only 3.50 and it doesn't get many visitors. I was the first one to come on the day and it was after 14h. But it was great to see a windmill from the inside and get a glimpse on how it worked. The windmill is not working, but... More

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.
