National Mill Day Netherlands
9 May 2020 - 10 May 2020
On Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 May 2020, hundreds of wind and water mills will be open to the public. More than 900 mills run and mill throughout the Netherlands on National Mills Day. Most mills can be visited free of charge. If you want to visit a mill and meet a miller, then National Mills Day is a great opportunity. Nice day out with children.
Many millers organize extra activities on and around the mill:
• bake pancakes with mill flour
• bicycle tours
• mill markets
• guided tours
• activities for children.
National Mills Day is a fun day out for children. They can see how a mill works from very close by. At a flour mill you can see how the grain is milled between the millstones. At a polder mill how the water is milled or pumped up with the scoop wheel or auger. In short, a wonderful day out!
