Owner description: Windmills have graced Bruges' ramparts ever since the construction of the outer city wall at the end of the 13th century. Today four specimens are left on Kruisvest. Sint-Janshuis Mill - anno 1770- is still in its original spot and still grinding grain just like its neighbour Koelewei Mill. The Sint-Janshuismolen is the only mill you can visit. OPEN: 01/04-30/09

“Great if you want to see an old classic windmill.”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

We wanted to make sure that we saw a windmill while visiting the low countries, and this completely satisfied our desires. You get to climb up into an historical windmill and learn about it. Definitely a stop you have to make!
