Nice reconstruction of Rembrandt's windmill

We spent happy hours in the Rembrandt gardens next to this windmill, which is worth a good look. It's only open on Saturdays and there's not a lot to see anyway, but it's a great... read more

of course you want to head back to your homeland with as many pics as possible to preserve your experiences...and i've already told you about the larger windmill closer to the station...but if you continue walking on the centrum side, past the first windmill to the left and you follow the curve to the left from the street straight out...

Great place if you are visiting Leiden. In the city center near het Galgenwater , the "volkenkunde Museum" and de Morspoort Close to the station, there is this wonderfull mill near de waterside. Great to stop for a few minutes and enjoy the view There are bars and restaurants a few meters away. So if you fancy a drink or... More

A beautiful replica of an original windmill, the Molen de Put is situated so that visitors can see how such mills worked, the upper structure turning to catch the wind. The Molen is free and is used to make grain, so visitors can see it in operation.

I was very pleased to see this wonderful windmill turning, proving that they're not all icons of the past! Such an iconic element of Dutch history.

Leiden, is the city where Rembrandt the painter was born and raised. This is an old city dating back to the Roman times. Its a charming city, that has given the Dutch many painters. This city is best I think done by foot, walking next to the Rhine. The architecture is harmonious yet does not become repetitive. The bridge is... More

Very photogenic and free entry into a working windmill, what more could you ask for? Well worth a visit but very steep stairs to climb to get in , so be prepared!

If you're in Leiden for a few days you'll probably pass by anyway :) It's worth a visit but not if you don't have time for many things to do if you ask me. However, yes, nice pictures can be taken here ;)

This is a beautiful little windmill, but want to heartily recommend that you visit De Valk before visiting this one. De Valk (the big, stone windmill in Leiden) will teach you all about the history of milling and the importance of windmills in Dutch culture, and it will make this little mill much, much more exciting. Also note, it is... More
