National Windmill Day

09/05/2020 - 10/05/2020
National Windmill Day

The second Saturday and Sunday in May is National Mill Day in Holland. On that day 950 windmills and watermills open their doors to visitors. For centuries, mills have played an important role in reclaiming land, processing raw materials and manufacturing products. Mills barely have any economic value these days, but they are iconic for Holland and still attract a great deal of attention.
