Seeing structures thst were built in the 1500's that are still working was amazing. It was a great tour and very informational! We went inside a few and saw what it was like to live there. Worth a look for sure

We visited only the newest one but it was closed so only took some pictures. This kind of windmill is only in Schiedam ( I think), because it's very high windmill. This newest one is 42,5 m and the highest mill in the world.
