National windmill days August
15 Aug 2020, 22 Aug 2020, 29 Aug 2020
The National windmill day is planned on every Saturday afternoon from 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm in August. With sufficient wind there will be as many windmills as possible in operation.
The mill’s milling days are organized for 63 years now. The reason that the mill’s milling days are organized is that all mills are structured and milled simultaneously for a period of time. It is a beautiful sight every year to see as many windmills as possible in operation at the same time. The minimum wind force required to put a mill into its work, and to allow the mill to continue milling days, is from wind force 2-3.
Is a visit to World Heritage Kinderdijk planned? It is a wonderful sight to see as many rotating windmills as possible at the same time! Hope to see you soon on one of the mill’s milling days!
From wind force 2-3 the mill can be operated on a National windmill day
