Informative sheet provided on arrival. Pleasant view from top floor. Would be great to see it in action - when does that happen? Very good selection of Dutch food available.

The windmill is so unique and very interesting with a working mill some days you can see them grinding the wheat into flour. Run by volunteers they do a great job.
