Windmill Day

Dutch Scenery
Just your average Dutch city skyline …

It’s Nationale Molendag (national windmill day) here in the NL, and the Molen de Ster (Star Windmill) here in Utrecht is participating. Basically, there are tours and music and various activities, all for free. This particular windmill is usually open to the public in one form or another, since there’s a small petting zoo next to it.

The event is mainly for kids, and as the weather keeps changing from sun to clouds to sun to clouds, I didn’t feel like chancing a visit. Really, this post is little more than a chance to post some photos I took of the windmill in January. Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

  1. Normally when it’s Molendag you get to tour inside the mill and they explain a bit about the process of flour-making, or sawing and the history of the mill as well, which is quite interesting.
