Overview

Visit one of the oldest windmills in Amsterdam! 

The windmill is a typical Dutch landmark. Despite the fact there are hundreds of mills in The Netherlands, the windmill of Sloten is a unique one. This windmill is a complete reconstructed polder mill, dating from 1847. You will find the Windmill in the outskirts of Amsterdam.

The ‘Mill of Sloten’ is a draining mill, located in the ancient village of Sloten, just within the Amsterdam city borders and not far from Schiphol Airport.
It is an octagonal thatched oak wood mill, situated alongside to the Haarlemmermeer Ring canal. Together with the ‘Akergemaal’, an electrical water pump, the mill is taking care of the de-watering of Amsterdam West.

The windmill is open the whole year round. The miller offers guided tours, while he tells you everything about living and working in a windmill. The windmill is accessible for elderly and people in wheelchairs, as there is an elevator inside the mill.

The Windmill  is an exceptional experience when visiting Amsterdam!

The famous painter Rembrandt van Rijn, also the son of a miller(!), had  a special connection with Sloten. High in the mill on the ‘attic’, is a presentation with several wax characters painted by Rembrandt. 

You can go by bike to this beautiful place.
