This is the only windmill in Amsterdam and just happens to have a brewery next door. The bar connected to the brewery (there are 2 different bars) serves flights of taster beers as well as a wider selection of its own craft beers. They will...More

A must see, really close to the center!! What is a visit to Amsterdam without including a windmill? This windmill is the closest to the canal ring so you can walk to see it or get the tram (about 10 minutes from Rijksmuseum area). It...More

A windmill near the centre of Amsterdam. It is not working but still lovely to sit outside with a drink and a light bite and stare in wonder

My daughter really wanted to see a windmill and we were only in Amsterdam for a few days. I think it satisfied her request. You can’t go in, but it is a “real” windmill.

If you are lucky, you might see the vast, streamlined sails of this 18thcentury corn mill creak into motion. Built in 1725, the whole octagonal structure was painstakingly moved to its present site in 1814. Best regards, Dr. Vorravee Pattaravongvisut Man on the Move

We passed it on the tram. Large and beautiful piece of architecture. Not sure if there's much to do in this area. Perhaps nice to sit with a drink as it backs onto the river.

The windmill is, from what I was told, the only windmill within Amsterdam city. It is a bit out of the way from the main tourist sites within the Centrum, but there is a bar/restaurant right next door. I don't think it is open for...More

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

I didn't go into the windmill, either. I don't think you can. I saw it on the hike I took to the Maritime Museum. I expect the Brewery has a website and you can google that. Wish I could be more helpful.
