At the Jenever museum the proces of making jenever is on display. Apparently the city of Schiedam thrived on this industry. The word Schnaps even is derived from Schiedam. Nice to visit

A walk in the history of Schiedam. Schiedam is build on jenever but most of the distilleries are gone of making different spirits. In the jenever museum they still make the jenever like in the old days. It s also pissible to try it 😉

Went at lunchtime on Mothering Sunday and was devastated to find it closed. Ditto the windmill. Either I'd got the opening times wrong or the staff were spending the day on the beach, possibly with their mothers. Anyway, the moral is to make absolutely sure...More

We learned a lot about the Jenever. We did not try the Jenevers, (it was too early for that!) The temporary exhibition was a bit boring.
