Everyone thinks of windmills when you think of the Netherlands and this is one of the few within easy reach of the city centre by walking. Supposed to be the largest surviving windmill in the Netherlands. Picture perfect !
Visiting a windmill is a must in Amsterdam and if you want a windmill that has a great pub underneath then this is the place to go. Tasty pub snacks and a great variety of beers. You can travel there by tram which is also a lovely experience.
This is a large windmill in Amsterdam, easy to get to. The walk along the canal on a warm sunny was lovely. Disappointed to be told that the windmill was closed to the public as it is now private residence. So, if you do want to see inside a windmill, go to another one!
It is a windmill. If you like windmills you will like it, although one can't go inside from what I understand. Definitely worth a trip here but for the brewery associated with it rather than for the mill itself.
This windmill is worth the stop, it’s the tallest of the Holland windmills, wonderful history, the backdrop is stunning. It however, is not open to the public, still it’s a great stop to take pictures and catch a beer or something to eat right at the base of the windmill.
