What an absolute gem of a find. This was the most unexpected find of our trip in Harlem. If you want to find out about Windmills in the Netherlands then look no further. Note this is not wheelchair friendly.

Guided tours around the windmill (molen) for 3.5euros pp. Excellent value. Our guide was Antonia and she was very knowledgable and entertaining both on windmills and the city of Haarlem. Very glad we went. We had seen 2 windmills already on our holiday, but this is a tour of a working windmill so you get to experience a lot more.

Although this isn't really a historic building, the site and this re-construction are a great introduction to Dutch windmills. The trust members and guides obviously are passionate about their Molen

After renting some scooters in Amsterdam we rode out to Haarlem and stumbled across this beauty. Nothing says Holland more than windmills, tulips and bikes. 5 minutes walk from the central train station its worth a visit.

I'm so glad I took a half-day trip to Haarlem from Amsterdam! It was amazing to be able to see the inside of the windmill (climbing up ladders to get to higher levels!) and be able to walk around on the deck to see how they turn and stop the sails. Wonderful information and so much better than Zaanse Schans... More

I have to say I had no idea what to expect with this tour but I was blown away! It was fascinating, engaging and our tour guide was honestly amazing. We were lucky enough to arrive at the top as the miller was closing the mill for the day so we got to see him seal it as well as... More

The Molen de Adrian stands out of Haarlem landscape and is a must if you are in the area. The windmill was restored by the community after a fire that brought it down to the ground. Local volunteers act as tour guides and take you through each floor of the mill where they have different installations with models to explain... More

We went to this windmill just out of curiousity, and we don't regret that at all. For a few Euros, you will get a guided tour inside the mill, and you will be shown how flour was grinded when the wind mill was working. Very interesting, and worth every cent of the entrance fee.

While I admit I had some reluctance at first - it was just a windmill, after all - this is one of the best attractions in the great city of Haarlem! You get a long, carefully guided tour of many different levels of action inside the windmill, with working demonstration models - it is really cool! Perhaps the highlight was... More
