One can't visit The Netherlands without visiting a windmill. Water management is so ingrained in the history of the country (and literally made the country) that to pass up a visit to a windmill is passing up what makes The Netherlands tick. The Schermer Mills are really amazing to see in action and provide an excellent history of how water management worked (and still works) 300 years ago. Not only are the windmills majestic and beautiful, but they serve such a practice purpose in the country. While not particular close to anything, the Schermer Mills are a must see when in The Netherlands.

By sunset i have to get these outstanding composition of the three windmills in Schermerhorn. I decided to get the contrast of the beauty by sunset though even in any day the mills are so interesting and awesome to see.

Maybe because i am Asian i was awed by the sight of these windmills. I am proud to recommend this place for everybody. You won't regret.

Our "guide" was really really good! he told us so many interresting things about the windmills, and he really helped making the experience authentic!

The Beemster Polder is a Unesco World Heritage Site and the scenery is just beautiful. Tour one of the windmills--the internal mechanics are pretty amazing and the tour guides volunteers---with a wealth of information!

You can enjoy a beautiful countryside near Alkmaar where you can find traditional dutch windmills. You can visit them.

As we couldn't go on a vacation outside europe, we did day trips around in the Netherlands. One of our destination is north of the Netherlands. We found one of the "Schermer molens" as soon as we left the village Grootschermer. Most of the mills are located along the "molendijk" and "Noordervaart" on the open field. It's much better than in the commercial windmill village "Zaanse Schans".

This is a must see attraction which is easily accessed from Amsterdam. The variety of sights here and the chilled atmosphere make this a great place to wander around and enjoy the day.

provides an excellent view of how polders and mills work, the mill is working so you can see it yourself. Fees are very affordable. If you go to North Holland, you must see this.

A very nice small museum that allows you to understand the how and the why for all the windmills in The Netherlands. The welcome video is multilingual, but most of the displays are in in English only. It is a bit out of the way, but I was able to get here by train and bus from Amsterdam. A wonderful "fresh air" perspective after a few days of dealing with Amsterdam. I also walked over and walked through the small village of Schermerhorn. A wonderful day outing.

If you are in the vicinity of Alkmaar, the visit his working windmill and learn how an important part they played in developing the area from floods. Tour of the windmill is very interesting and yet again, the guide translated into English for the benefit of the non Dutch speaking.
