The Molen de Adriaan is a smocked windmill situated in the heart of Haarlem on the picturesque river Spaarne. It was initially built in 1778 and was recently rebuilt after fire damage in 1932. In specific, a journey provides information on how windmills work and uses models and presentations to explain how distinct devices can be powered by wind power. Visitors are likely to be amazed at the versatility of these factories and how important they were to the communities that had them. Ancient Haarlem's view from the platform above the river is truly incredible and not to be missed.
The mill can be seen in use on Saturdays if weather allows and is open for daily tours. The town is small, and while parking is available, walking the streets of the town is nice — Haarlem is just a 15-minute train ride from Amsterdam. A tour of the town canal will show you the various water sites. A smooth walk to the mill is no problem at all.
