Full description

Step into the shoes of a Dutch miller at the Sloten Windmill. Accompanied by your guide, experience a fully functioning water pumping mill on the outskirts of picturesque Amsterdam. Enjoy the unique opportunity to explore one of the few windmills open to the public. Dating back to 1847, the Sloten Windmill still controls the water levels in low-lying Amsterdam West.

Before entering, marvel at the quaint thatched roof and hardy oak build. Follow your guide through the windmill. Learn how it works, see the wings turning, and discover its fascinating history. As you climb up the windmill, hear stories of nearby villages Sloten and Old Osdorp. In the attic, wonder at wax characters painted by the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn.

From the top, enjoy a panoramic view of the surrounding canals.
