A 1987 replica of a windmill by Jan Jansenszoon Put. Originally, this windmill dates from 1619. The windmill is located on the outskirts of the old city of Leiden and is surrounded by very nice idyllic canals.

If you are in the town centre it is definitely worth the short stroll to see the windmill. A really pretty location beside a small park and close to bars and cafes

Molen de Put is located on the edge of the old town of Leiden. Even though both the bridge and the windmill are replicas it doesn’t take anything away from this masterpiece - simply a beautiful setup. I understand the mill is open on Saturdays,...More
