My husband and I decided to drive to Schiedam instead of Utrecht to see the windmills. We did not have a hard time finding a parking spot and headed to Old Town. Our first stop was a pleasant stop at Lunchroom de Beurs which happend to be open on the early Sunday morning we were there and had a wonderful time visiting. Then we went to see the tallest windmills, unfortunatley most of them were closed except the Palmboom. We paid the small fee and climbed the stairs to the musemum and then up to the area where you can go outside to where the windsails were and get a view of the town. There was a guide who was already explaining the workings of the sails to a family and when he was done with them he explained it to us. We then all went to the next level to the inner workings of the mill and what it was used for. After the the young boys and the grandparents went down he proceeded to give us a tour of the upper part of the windmill, all the way to the top, we could even look out of the uppermost window and see the sails go around. It was a very enjoyable and informative time. The tour guide used to actually work in the mill before it burnt down and was rebuilt and now is the tour guide. I also bought a black and white print that they had for sale at the shop.
