Chapels and windmills in and around Breda

  • The Netherlands

First you cycle to Etten-Leur and the Zwartenberg windmill. This polder mill from 1889 replaces a mill from 1721. In Breda you will come across the Emmaüs chapel, from the Old Episcopal Catholic Church. The chapel was built in 1990. The contrast with the St. Joost chapel could not have been greater: this chapel is the oldest in Breda and was founded in 1436. Over the years, the chapel has served as a warehouse, as a stable, as a prison for soldiers and as a home. The Royal Military Academy (KMA) is now located in Breda Castle. The castle's history dates back to 1350. The Beguinage Chapel, located in the oldest beguinage in the Netherlands, is also special.

The Zwartenbergse Molen is the only mill in North Brabant that still has a real grinding function. Yet windmills were not only used to produce grain from cereals, but also to reclaim polder areas. The mill can move a maximum of 80 cubic meters of water per minute.

De Lelie

The most famous windmill type in the Netherlands. Windmills were used not only to produce flour from cereals, but also to reclaim polder areas. Natural energy. The most famous windmills can be found in Kinderdijk, really set up as a polder model. A must see!
