Ww walked one of the many routes through the neighboring fields and meadows (cows considered us an attraction and followed us) and along ditches and barbed wire which in the end turned into a 10 mile walk. The last mile and a half covered more rural territory and had us walk past the windmill. Luckily there was a bench and a blue sky. What a lovely sight it was. From below it is huge and it looks very well maintained. It's still in use and people still live in it.

The first thing to say is that the windmill is rarely open, so all you can do is look at it. But it is very well maintained and definitely worth a look, and it’s a pleasant walk along the canal on a warm day.

This is situated by the canal near the walking path so if you head down there you will come across it. Nice to see a traditional building up close as we usually only see the windmills from the train

This windmill offers a great photo op - it is still working, but it is privately owned and pretty much just for tourists. The location is at the end of the park near the old city which makes for a nice walk.

Never mind if the fine old wind mill is closed. It’s beautiful, the wings turn slowly - and most important: It’s one of the most picturesque spots in Alkmaar.

Go do your job, tourist!

Like everyone else who visits the lovely city of Alkmaar, I dutifully walked to the Molen Van Groot and took a photo. And that’s about it really.

We were in a walking tour with Alkmaar tours and were shown the windmill. We learned several details about the mill, it’s location and current status. The mill is being renovated so was covered in plastic wrap,but was still worth seeing. East walk on scenic trails or from shopping/cafe area of town. View from beside mill also scenic.

The windmill is located on the outskirts of the old city along a nice walking path. It's a great little walk and not as busy as the center of the old city.

There is no guest of mine who hasnt been in front of the molen van groot for taking a photo. You can visit it when there is the open day for visiting the mills.
