Kinrooi, located in the northeastern tip of Limburg: a land of pleasures dotted with good taste, this municipality exudes both tranquility and action.

From here you can sail on the border to the Netherlands. You take the helm into your own hands and sail with a luxurious still sloop on the Maas and Maasplassen. Fields and fields of this rural community conjure up the most delicious fresh vegetables on your plate. Like the pride of every Kinrooien: asparagus. The white gold is so important to Kinrooi that it is assigned its own queen every year.

Joannes Keijers built this stone windmill, a mountain or belt mill, in 1869 as the second mill of Molenbeersel (B) just across the border at Stramproy. In 2015, the great-grandson of Joannes Keijers, Theo Keijers, was honored for having been at the mill for 70 years. This makes the Keijersmolen unique: the mill has always remained the property of one family. The Keijersmolen is also one of the few mills that kept grinding on wind power. Around 1930 the mill became one of the first in Belgium. "covered". The blades were fitted with metal plates to reduce air resistance and improve the aerodynamics of the mill. In 1955 an iron long spout, a special feature, was inserted and the mill also got iron short and long braces. Its current appearance is the Keijersmolen in 1969 when the mill was completely plastered.
