While I admit I had some reluctance at first - it was just a windmill, after all - this is one of the best attractions in the great city of Haarlem! You get a long, carefully guided tour of many different levels of action inside the windmill, with working demonstration models - it is really cool! Perhaps the highlight was... More

Interesting guided tour of the windmill and talk about the history of Amsterdam's windmills and this particular mill. Friendly staff and a reasonable price. Only 15 euro for our family. Beware if you have mobility issues or very young children as the top three flights of stairs are more like a ladder than stairs!

The view from the top is lovely and we were lucky enough to be there when the windmill was running - what a treat. Cost was €3.50 and took... More

We had a guided tour, in English, that proved insightful and interesting. The tour provides insights into windmills across the Netherlands. Be prepared to climb ladders and step out onto the platform on which millers set the windmill's sails. Our visit was one of the highlights of our time in the Netherlands.

Zaanse Schans near Amsterdam has a variety of windmills that you can visit, listen to stories, see workers working inside. Only if you could not visit Zaanse Schans, then enter Molen de Adriaan musuem. Go to the top of the windmill and enjoy the nice view. The walk around this windmill is relaxing, having beautiful houses around, with the water... More

This was actually one of the best tours we did in the Netherlands and we learned so much. The guide was excellent the other staff were task masters and a little bossy.

We visited Haarlem as a day trip from Amsterdam and whilst there we visited the windmill. The tour is really interesting and undertaken by a really knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide with an obvious passion for the windmill, its workings, and sharing this with her visitors. The tour is also excellent value and if you are in Haarlem I highly recommend... More
