This windmill is considered one of the Netherlands' largest windmills. It is quite a beautiful sight and makes for an absolutely photogenic scene.

Situated in the historic area of Delfshaven, it is also surrounded by beautiful architecture, history, art, culture, and many shops and restaurants.

This mill was built in 1986, however, it is currently not functioning as a flour mill, just a beautiful structure with a lot of history.

If you decide to visit this place, you can sign up for an educational tour which costs only 5 euros. Moreover, there's also the mill shop where you can buy a lot of fresh products such as freshly ground coffee, tea, drinks, and an assortment of freshly baked goods.
