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...

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

This mill is a newly build copy on a scenic site. The nice thing is that volunteers keep it running.

I read about this attraction on Tripadivor when I was preparing my trip to Leiden. Well, it’s worth to pay a visit tot his small attraction but keep in mind that it is only opened on Saturdays and a few festival days. We enjoyed watching the mill on a sunny day at one of the seats near the mill. Nearby... More
