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

A gray day with overcast skies but still worth it. It was not open but still a nice walk and a good place to visit

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

This area is very pretty and great for photos. The windmill is set beside a bridge and a canal. It's a great spot to sit and relax take some photos and go into the windmill.

I found this to be a nice setting for a windmill. I had to return again to get the best photo with afternoon sun position.

We followed a walking tour of Leiden and passed this cute windmill. It was not open to visitors during the Saturday we visited but it is in a beautiful section of town, next to a picturesque little bridge.
