National windmill days September

On the first two Saturdays of September, as many windmills as possible are operating during the National windmill days. September 11 is the last official National windmill day of the season.

Annual event

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
