Molen Van Sloten - Review
If you are visiting Amsterdam and you are not visiting the windmills, then you are missing the essence of the city. In short, these structures are sort of equivalent to the identity of the city and that is why; you need to visit these places. This windmill is situated on the Akersluis 10 and was built way back in the 19th century. Along with the windmill, there is also the neighboring village named Sloten.
You can enjoy both the windmill and also the scenic beauty of the area. Along with that, there is another important thing about this windmill, it is a municipality house and that is why, it is possible to get married here. The experience is indeed unique and romantic as well.

Upon initial inspection, you're likely to think this place was just a 'tourist trap' - but please, don't let the looks of this gem of Amsterdam fool you. The amount of information passed on by the amazing staff was nothing short of spectacular. Yes, the small attached museum may seem out of place, but in the context of what additional functionality the windmills performed, it all makes sense. I'll again stress the staff. The people at this attraction love their history, love their windmills, love to tell everyone about all of it. It's a bit 'out of the way', but it's well worth the trip to this diamond in the rough. 😊
From my point of view a monument of great use. The mill pumps water to the canal that streams to the IJselmeer and to the sea. That's how we keep our feet dry in the Netherlands.
It was wondweful to see a real working wind mill. The man who runs it gave us a great tour. I highly recommend it.
Nice tourist guides. Introduced the Molen Van Sloten history in detail. Although spent around an hour traveling time by tram, but having nice experience and learning. Highly recommended.
Great working windmill! The tour guides are fantastic and love to answer questions. The tour was 8.5 Euro and included more than just the mill. Local people through the years have brought historical and interesting local artifacts to the mill so they also have a small collection of such things. They have several large models of Dutch ships right the ages both River and ocean faring. I really liked the fact that you could see the mill all the way from the Archimedes screw to the very top break arm. They have several models of various windmills both inside and out well as City diaramas to explain how the polders work. And since Rembrandt was a miller's son (and maybe some other connection to Sloten...) The have a 10 minute audio visual presentation on Rembrandt.
