“Lovely.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is a lovely example of a working windmill.
The guided tour is very details and gives a wonderfully understandable explanation of how this wonder really works.
I was told that this is the only windmill that is open to the public around Amsterdam, and that makes the 8 Euros ticket price even more reasonable.
no visit to the Netherland is complete without visiting a windmill, and this iconic beauty in Sloten would certainly do the trick.
Highly recommended.

“Its a must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

This Windmill is just one of a few still working and the only one open to the public. The guide was pleasant and friendly and made us feel welcome. He explained the workings of a windmill and informed us that if we were not already married we could be married in the mill. They hold approx. 56 weddings a year. One of the most romantic things in the world. The only bad point about the mill is that the tram stop is a good 15 minute walk but it's worth it. The price was approx. 8 euros or Free with an Amsterdam pass.

“The Windmill tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

for visitors to Holland, the windmill is an icon, this is the only one open to the public near Amsterdam. entry is only about 8 EUR. our guide gave us a very detailed and full description of the windmill system in Amsterdam. and also fully illustrated to us how the windmill operates. During the session the wind pick up and he actually started the windmill for us !

This was the best session during out visit to Amsterdam.

From centraal, catch tram number 2 to the last stop, Niew Sloten, and walk there, print a map from google first. Also next door is a snack food store and you can try some local snack foods.

“A love for windmills!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Did not expect to much, but we were then facinated by this tour. We learning about how Holland manages its complex water system through windmills and how thes magic towers work. Our guide shared with passion a deep knowlege how life was in the windmill and cillage life of past years. Run by volunteers who keep the mill turning you can feel their love and pride.
