Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Picture perfect

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 !

Great drinking spot

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.

De Gooyer Windmill - Closed to the public
Aug 2019
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!

A windmill

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.

A windmill smack dab in the city! Awesome!

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.

You know you're in Holland

We knew we had arrived in Holland when we saw this Dutch windmill. It dates from 1725 and is the tallest wooden mill in the Netherlands at 87 feet (26.6 meters) high.

Not a time-consuming stop, but a "have to do" while you're here -- especially if you're not going further into windmill territory. And there's a craft brewery at the base where you can sip a brew in the shade of the windmill and acclimate to the new time zone.

Beautiful icon

Seeing a windmill in Amsterdam ticks a certain box. It’s a bit out of the centre of town but walkable or else a quick hop on a bike!

The brewery underneath opens mid afternoon to give you a little treat for making the effort

A stop definately worth a look of an original windmill. Of historic significance and still standing intact.

Windmill at town
Apr 2019 • Couples
De Gooyer Windmill should be the closest windmill in town and within walking distance from Centraal Station. It was good for photo-taking and you could even view this icon while traveling around the city by bus.
