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.

A beautiful treasure Haarlem possess, it´s so nice to walk there, you get to see beautiful places. Haarlem itself it´s such a beautiful and interesting city.

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

Interesting guided tour of the windmill and talk about the history of Amsterdam's windmills and this particular mill. Friendly staff and a reasonable price. Only 15 euro for our family. Beware if you have mobility issues or very young children as the top three flights of stairs are more like a ladder than stairs!

What a great tour we had of the windmill. Loekin our guide was delightful and she seemed to really enjoy telling us about the workings of the windmill and some history. The view from the top is lovely and we were lucky enough to be there when the windmill was running - what a treat. Cost was €3.50 and took... More

Brilliant attraction. Staff and guide very friendly and the interior of the mill is well designed as a museum.

We had a guided tour, in English, that proved insightful and interesting. The tour provides insights into windmills across the Netherlands. Be prepared to climb ladders and step out onto the platform on which millers set the windmill's sails. Our visit was one of the highlights of our time in the Netherlands.
