A real working windmill, and you are able to klim all the way to the top on the inside. Its a great place to see a real working windmill. Its just a couple off minutes drive from the city of Alkmaar.

Still a working mill. This one is an actually home, for display, and shows the sleeping areas, kitchen etc. Walk to the top and see how the mill works and how pieces are replaced when worn. A man is in the mill to answer questions.
