Molen Windlust

Visit the website
This windmill was built in Nederweert in 1872. The mill has had different owners over the centuries, but since 2001 the mill has been owned by the municipality of Nederweert. It may be called a miracle that this mill can still be found in Nederweert. In 1944 the mill was almost completely destroyed when a German troop set the mill on fire. In 1947 the remains of the interior were removed and only the burnt-out hull remained. Between 1979 and 1993, the mill was restored by the then owner and the mill came back to life. The entire interior of the mill was renewed with the exception of the top shaft. In 2009, the municipality started a reconstruction of the oil percussion work in collaboration with the Adriaens windmill maker. Since the summer of 2011, the mill has been operational again. For example, the mill changed from a wreck into a mill that works fine again.
