Windmills were once the driving force of the Dutch economy. The factories of the past. With the help of the natural energy sources of water and wind, polders were drained, planks were sawn, barrels full of oil were pressed and sacks of grain were ground. You cycle past a number of windmills in the municipality of Berkelland. Each mill has its own story. Fires and natural disasters have destroyed mills over the centuries, but the mills have been rebuilt again and again and in recent decades they have mainly been restored. A piece of nostalgia is preserved and the production of pure products, such as authentic miller's flour, to bake delicious breads is also kept going.

Nearby tips:
Experience the Berkel! Sample on one of the Berkelzompen and sail along for a bit. The skippers take you back to earlier times. The view from the water is fantastic and there is plenty of storytelling along the way. Zomp'De Snippe\\\' sails on Sunday through the lock at the Mallumse mill. You can also board in Borculo. In Borculo you can book at the Tourist Information Borculo.
