Molen de Put is located on the edge of the old town of Leiden. Even though both the bridge and the windmill are replicas it doesn’t take anything away from this masterpiece - simply a beautiful setup. I understand the mill is open on Saturdays,...More

I love the scenery. typical Dutch. The bridge and the Molen, the perfect pair. We reached here during our walk along the Rhine and up to the canals. The other side of the bridge is the Rembrandtplaats and park. A place not to be missed...More

If you want your pictures, come here. Great photo ops and just very nice. Bonus is the birthplace of Rembrandt on the other side of the bridge

This area is very pretty and great for photos. The windmill is set beside a bridge and a canal. It's a great spot to sit and relax take some photos and go into the windmill.

I found this to be a nice setting for a windmill. I had to return again to get the best photo with afternoon sun position.

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.
