What would a visit to the Netherlands be without seeing or visiting a Windmill? Yet, I hadn't seen one until I took a bus tour to The Haag and Delft, a trio called The Three Sisters. On a very industrious touristy day in Amsterdam, I walked from the Van Gogh to the Maritime Museum, and on the way, saw this... More

This mill is kind of "can not miss" while being in Amsterdam. There are not too many windmills in the capital and this one, with its closely located bar is cool. Great atmosphere to sit near these beauty!

Even though it is quite a walk to reach the "De Gooyer Windmill" it is worth the effort. They serve many types of beer and I advise trying them all. It is a fun experience.

Interesting venue with great beer! The snacks are fun - eggs, cheese and garlic sausage. Check the opening times as it is limited from 2pm to 8pm. Well worth the effort of walking there,

They have the best beer in town!!! The only bad point is the closing time at 20.00....too early!! I love to go there, expecially at Summer time when you can enjoy the beanches outside. Very friendly and fast service

A great place to sample lots of beers, it is really busy, benches and beers sloshing everywhere. It's a little off the beaten track, so plan your journey back, before the beer starts to flow 😉

Make sure you arrive after 2pm as the brewery is open then until 8 pm. What a great time we had talking with other people, locals and tourists. The place is really buzzy and the beers are great! The air is filled with the smell of hops brewing. Oh..and there is a massive windmill there too!!!

One of the things I was desperate to see when we went to Amsterdam! I was not disappointed! One of the few windmills still in Amsterdam and well worth a look - if only for nostalgia's sake!

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
