We followed a walking tour of Leiden and passed this cute windmill. It was not open to visitors during the Saturday we visited but it is in a beautiful section of town, next to a picturesque little bridge.

Good place for a quick jog by the canal. Beware of the cyclists though as they tend to come out of nowhere.

As many of you may know, this windmill is the replica of an old-fashioned windmill. It is very unique. I passed it while walking around the city, it's just nice to look at.

This was the view from my hotel room. I couldn't wait to visit. It is a beautiful mill and it is closed to the public.

Molen de Put is a 1987 replica of an old fashioned windmill located near a walking bridge over the Galgewater (the Leiden sweet water harbour). It can be visited inside for free on Saturday (maybe also on other days ...)

A symbol of the city. Easy to see from the distance, it has to be described probably as "iconic". Very typical and still unique. I enjoyed its view a lot.

This windmill caught our eye while we walked along a canal in Leiden. It is a replica of the original windmill. The style is different from the other windmills we saw in The Netherlands. Of course, we had to take a photograph.

This is not the original windmill but worth a view if in the area. Got some great photos with the environment surrounding the windmill. Kinderdyke is now far away with 19 working windmills, but if time doesn't permit a visit this is a special site...More

Based on the history of the mill, this is a replica of an old windmill dated back to 1619 and the current mill is located in the north end of the town near the Rembrandt Bridge, opposite to the Molenmuseum De Valk. It is interesting...More
