Icon description route Description

Discover the charm of the Dutch polders. As you make your way through the rustic landscape, you’ll be surprised by the Great Mill, a magnificent post mill from the 17th century. This national monument is a gem just outside Zoeterwoude-Rijndijk and a striking example of Dutch mill history. It's an idyllic spot that momentarily takes you back in time.

The mill has been lovingly maintained and restored, with even the top part brought back to its original blue-gray color. Once built for the drainage of the Great Polder, the mill is now operational in circuit – an intriguing technique that recirculates water. If you appreciate cultural history mingled with serene nature, then this walking route is an excellent chance to experience the Dutch mill landscape and enjoy an authentic piece of the Netherlands.
