The mill is situated next to our hotel. It's not a real one. The original mill was build in the 17th Century, this one in 1997. Next to the mill, you have the Rembrandt bridge. The mill is now under construction.

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

Most Saturdays this windmill is open to the public for free visits. Volunteers operate the mill and they still grind flower, which you can buy on-site. You can climb up into the mill itself, see the moving parts, and learn about what you're seeing from...More
