National Mill Day
May 13, 2023 - May 14, 2023, All of Holland
Visit a mill
Visit one of 950 mills that open their doors on National Mill Day. Millers make a real effort to decorate their mills as beautifully as possible with flags and flowers. A miller will take you on a tour, providing a good explanation of the type of mill you are visiting. It could happen that you will be asked to give the miller a hand in turning the sails. Fun activities are often organised for children, allowing them to become familiar with the miller’s trade in a playful way.
Go on a mill bike tour
There is no better day to discover Dutch mills than on National Mill Day. The best way to visit these Dutch icons in May is on a bicycle. At a VVV Tourist Information Office, ask about bicycle routes that will take you past the most beautiful mills.
Although National Mill Day is a free event, a small contribution towards maintenance is always appreciated.
