Read a review below that implied that everything is free...well, visiting the inside of the windmill cost abt. $7 euros, had no gift shop to speak of & was freezing cold. The copper foraging shop cost euros too but we passed on that.
If you want to experience windmills, souvenier shops, wooden shoe woodworking demos, the quickest & lamest explaination of cheese-making ever and a fairlly decent dutch crepe restaurant all in one location, then you've come to the right place...also tour buses teeming with folks from all over the world. They even have a small play area for kids (has jump ropes, little bowling game, stilts).
Grandchildren enjoyed this but I could have passed on it. Had done all of this in Oregon/Washington State with, I might add, a considerable more friendliness than experienced here.
