Nice 6 hour trip. 2 hours out / home and 2 hours at the mills / city. Lots of space on the sun deck - otherwise space down in the boat. The mills and the miniput town were all worth it. Lots to see in the channels back and forth.

It was nice wheather! You can feel free. Museum fantastic.. You can see a lot and experience a different feeling. The molens they are so beautiful! I will go again with my family.

It was a beautiful day out where Dutch workers asked ordinary people to work at the fireplace in the eu, where such a small country is known all over the world,

great to see how a mill works. enthusiastic employees who explain it fantastically.

Piece of Dutch Glory. It is a pity that there is no subsidy to support this.
