Bronkhorst Things to Do

    Have a walk in Bronkhorst. It isn't that hard to walk around as it is a small village. But beware that there are parts of the road have boulders (which can make it a bit harder to walk). You will find nice houses which shows how the houses where back in the 15th century.

    I always find it fascinating how a windmill (essentially a wooden machine) works. Great wooden installations grinding away...

    One of the oldest of town rights was the right of milling. This meant that everyone in the town was obliged to use that one mill and no one was allowed to build or exploit a windmill on the grounds of the lord that ruled there. The lords of Bronkhorst built a windmill in the 15th century and gave the exploitation to the highest bidder. Only after 3 days without wind, were the inhabitants allowed to use another mill. This tradition stood until 1795 but the windmill burned down in 1844. This stone windmill was restored in 1958.

    The shop is on the first floor of the mill. You will have to climb a ladder!
    The windmill can be visited when the millers are there. So if you see the mill turning, you'll know it's open.

    What to buy: You can buy plain flour, wholemeal or white flour, pancake mix, and a variety of cake mixes.

    What to pay: Just a few euro per packet.

    When visiting a windmill, be prepared to climb a few ladders and be careful not to touch anything. Those grinding wooden elements have great power and can hurt you.

    There's an interesting website (in Dutch) about Bronkhorst. On the map you see the old moat (blue lines) which has disappeared.

    Favorite thing: This couple wasn't lucky enough to have good weather but hopefully they have all the other luck in the world.
    Bronkhorst has ample photo opportunities for a bride and groom.
