This windmill caught our eye while we walked along a canal in Leiden. It is a replica of the original windmill. The style is different from the other windmills we saw in The Netherlands. Of course, we had to take a photograph.

This is not the original windmill but worth a view if in the area. Got some great photos with the environment surrounding the windmill. Kinderdyke is now far away with 19 working windmills, but if time doesn't permit a visit this is a special site to see.

Based on the history of the mill, this is a replica of an old windmill dated back to 1619 and the current mill is located in the north end of the town near the Rembrandt Bridge, opposite to the Molenmuseum De Valk. It is interesting to learn about the function and the history of windmill as part of the Netherlands'... More

Nice windmill but keep in mind that this is a recently build replica of the windmill owned by Rembrandt's family. Stop by after you visit the Morspoort, but head to the de Valk windmill where you can enter and see the living section and the mechanical works.

We spent happy hours in the Rembrandt gardens next to this windmill, which is worth a good look. It's only open on Saturdays and there's not a lot to see anyway, but it's a great addition to the city's skyline.

of course you want to head back to your homeland with as many pics as possible to preserve your experiences...and i've already told you about the larger windmill closer to the station...but if you continue walking on the centrum side, past the first windmill to the left and you follow the curve to the left from the street straight out...

A beautiful replica of an original windmill, the Molen de Put is situated so that visitors can see how such mills worked, the upper structure turning to catch the wind. The Molen is free and is used to make grain, so visitors can see it in operation.
