It was much more than we expected.
They were milling flour when we visited. It was fun to watch and learn how this hundreds of years old technology still works. The mill operators were very friendly and let me see close up how the whole process worked.

We recommend the free tour inside the windmill to see how the hardworking volunteers turn various grains into flour. Fascinating to feel the power of the wind being transferred to the grinding stones.

If you are in Delft, it is a must to stop here and take pictures. It is located maybe 10 minutes or less on foot from the train station and also same distance from the center of the town with the main square. Nothing special though but I guess for someone who is not from the Netherlands, it is a must to bring a photo of a windmill home.

Was the first time I've actually seen a windmill in Holland! Just took some pics outside as didn't look like it was open. Just down the road from the train station on the main strip.

It was a rainy day and I was the only person visiying the windmill. The gentleman manning the mill and shop was really great.He gave a guided tour, explained the working of the mill and climbing upstairs gave a different view and understanding of the mill.
There was a shop selling flour,etc since I was a tourist didnt buy anything but saw some folks entering to buy stuff as I was leaving. Location of the windmill is also central and gives a good view of the meRby attractions.

One of the windmills remaining from when they ringed the city on the walls of the protective barrier.

By going on a drizzly morning we missed any crowds. The super nice volunteer took us up to each level and explained the entire milling operation. Great way to see and understand these great Dutch windmills.

We visited many windmills while in the Netherlands but we would count the Molen de Roos as one of our favorites. First because it is a working mill and is staffed by a wonderful staff of volunteers who are very happy to tell you about the mill and how it works. My friend is a mechanical engineer and he was very happy with our guide who could explain the mechanics of the mill and gave more details then we have ever been given. We bought some of the flour in the gift shop to bring home a piece of this gem. Do not miss this wonderful historic site in Delft!!

Without a doubt this was one of the highlights of my trip to Delft - the chance to see a working windmill. I couldn't believe my luck as I got there as the windmill blades were flying around and the mill was working full tilt.
You climb about 4 stairwells which are basically ladders to the platform and watch as the guy operates the sails.
As it was near the end if the working day we got to watch him apply the brakes and take down the four sails. It's was amazing to see his patience and skill and he was so friendly talking away to us all explaining what he was doing.
The machinery inside is on display too as they work and the whole place groaned and throbbed with energy as the mill did its work.
Just a wonderful experience and no entry fee at all which was quite unbelievable. I never expected this to be such a highlight as I never expected to be going in! I was prepared to be happy with just a few photos! Apparently a blue flag flying outside tells you it's open for a visit. A guy in the shop under the windmill kindly explained this to me and invited me to ascend the ladders. What an experience!

Molen de Roos is the last mill standing in Delft! It dates back to 1678 and it is still in business. It has not actually worked non-stop since then, but it has undergone some renovation works in recent years and is now functioning. Apparently you can go in and buy flour produced on the premises. While you are there you can climb up to the floors above and take in some great views all around and at the same time receive lots of interesting information about the mill and its history. It is very easy to get there. If you travel to Delft by train, like we did, turn left as you exit the station and keep walking straight down the main road. You can see the mill all the way down the road. It's only a few minutes walk. You can't miss it. Unfortunately it was closed at the time of our visit, so we did not get the full advantage of a visit.
