You need tickets in advance. The café beside the Windmill has a very large selection of beers. They also have great local snacks

This windmill is located quite far off the beaten path for most travellers, and so needs more than just a quick detour to see. The windmill itself is lovely and very impressive, making for wonderful photos. However, the interior of the windmill is inaccessible. There...More

Nice, if rundown, windmill that makes for a decent photo opportunity. Even better - there's a fantastic microbrewery operating right below it that serves great beer and cheap snacks. Worth a detour.

This windmill stands out like a sore thumb and of course it's exciting to see a real windmill but it's very run down and its big draw card now is the pub underneath it. The pub itself isn't much of anything but the locals seem...More

Windmills for tourists are not plentiful; so if you want to go home and brag about having seen one, this might be your last chance! So, do it!!

We spotted the windmill from the Science Centre at the harbour and decided to visit. Unfortunately, we were looking out the wrong side of the tram and missed it! Worth coming back for as it is a stunning sight, with a great pub next door.

We took the number 14 tram out to the De Gooyer Windmill. Takes about 15 mins. It's worth a visit in my view. A very impressive structure. You can't go in so it's more of a photo opportunity but with the brewery next door you...More

This was a beautiful Windmill to see and we found that it is also the tallest in the country. It is over 400 years old!

De Gooyer- tallest wooden mill in Netherlands is worth a visit if you want to take a break away from the main touristy attractions. But its just a mill and there is nothing much to do around. A guided tour could make your trip more...More

This windmill has been in this spot since 1814. It's the tallest wooden windmill in the Netherlands. I got to see it the first time from the HOP-ON HOP-OFF bus tour and managed to see it a few more times before we left Amsterdam. It...More

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

I didn't go into the windmill, either. I don't think you can. I saw it on the hike I took to the Maritime Museum. I expect the Brewery has a website and you can google that. Wish I could be more helpful.
