Had to see a windmill while in the Netherlands, this was within walking distance from my hotel and next to a really nice park. Very glad I took the time to walk over.

Netherlands is always associated with Tulips & Windmills. Seeing a windmill in reality was a new an amazing experience. Was able to see at close hand how the windmill works.Which was fascinating. It was lovely taking photographs for memories of this wonderful experience. Well worth a visit.

I visited the mill this spring. I think Spring is my favourite season because Mother Nature looks most beautiful in this season. In the case of Rieker windmill, Narcissus flowers that grew around it were the perfect natural “make-up” for the mill. This time, late summer, I went to the mill again. I was surprised and excited with the view.... More

Shows the working of a windmill, how the windmiller lived, room layout, furniture etc. Able to go up inside windmill and onto outer deck. Brilliant, well worth the small entrance fee

One of the 945 windmills remaining in the Netherlands, from what used to be a solid 10,000+. Located in the company of Rembrandt, who is posing as projecting, the way he is remembered often, it is an excellent stop during a bike ride to Amstelpark.

This hidden (not exactly hidden, but it was unexpected) gem was amazing. The windmill house and pond area was stellar. The beauty of it was incredible. What really was fun, after the windmill, was the gorgeous garden next to it, that is owned by the nearby school, and the old Town just a few feet away. We walked through the... More

We stopped off here on the way to our river cruise only briefly. It was a shame as we were literally only given 10mins to take photos and never knew about the statue on the other side until the bus left and drove past it! Bad on the part of the tour operator and we didn't get the chance to... More

Spring is the right time to visit. Simply because the flowers around the windmill start to bloom. I mean..., what is more Dutch than a windmill and beautiful flowers??? (well, there's a lot actually hehe :) But this spot is just not to be missed if you are around. I saw some people cycling along Amstel River (one of the... More

After a morning in and around Amsterdam we travelled to this windmill. Great place to take photos. Easy walk from our tour bus. Easy to get to if you are not travelling further in Netherlands. Stark contrast to the new wind turbines.
