North Holland Dune Reserve

After you leave the Heilooer forest, you will soon see the Varnebroeker , a polder mill from 1860. The idyllic surroundings of Castle Egmond are a nice ending to your route.

Sights

Geestmolen

Geestmolen
1816HJ Alkmaar
http://www.allemolens.nl

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

Molen van Piet


1811 DP Alkmaar
http://www.molenvanpiet.nl/

In the middle of Alkmaar you will find the Molen van Piet. This tower mill was built in 1769 and from then on the mill served as a flour mill for centuries. Since 1993 that function has been discontinued. Now the blades only turn 'for the prince'. From a formal point of view, the name of this mill is 'De Groot', but the windmill is never actually referred to as such. The name 'Molen van Piet' refers to Cornelis Piet, a miller who had the lower floors of the mill converted into a house in 1884.
