    You can see the Oostendorper mill at Madurodam (minituare Holland)..
    It is built in miniature size on 1.45 square metres in 1996. It took four months to build.
    Interestingly, to be able to place this watermill in Madurodam, the water management of this miniature town had to be adapted so that the water does indeed move the water wheels of the mill.

    Madurodam is an official city (its mayor is always someone younger than 18) and located within the boundaries of The Hague.
