Goirle Windmills

  Molenstraat 80, Goirle      (+31) 135 81 12 65     more than a year ago

There are only two authentic windmills left in Goirle. Of these, De Visscher, built in 1875 at Molenstraat 80, and De Wilde, built in 1898 at Nieuwe Rielseweg 39, only the latter is still in use. Grain is ground into flour regularly, but obviously only when the wind cooperates. On Saturday mornings you can come here to watch the age old milling process, which is so typical of The Netherlands, or just to admire these amazing examples of 'archaic' but useful technology that allowed Holland to become prosperous all those many years ago.
