Overview

Highlights

  • See the sails turn, learn how the mill works, and get the history dating back to the 1800s
  • Find out why the mill is vital in this area that sits more than two meters below sea level
  • Get free access to the Coopery Museum and see how wooden barrels were made for storage

Description

Step into the shoes of an old Dutch miller (or maybe a young one – who knows?) at the Sloten Windmill, a functioning draining mill with an adjoining museum on the outskirts of Amsterdam.

This rotating beauty dates back to 1847, and it's one of the few windmills that are open to the public. Getting a tour inside is a real rare treat. See how the mill controls the water levels in Amsterdam West, how the sails are turning, and more. With sea levels rising, this could all be vital information!
