    Windmill "de Brak"

    Windmill

    I don´t think no city in Netherlands could manage without a windmill. Neither can Sluis, this beauty was builded 1739. But as you drive around the country you find something interesting in every mill and see how different they are from each other

    Buildings in Sluis

    The best thing is that there is no modern skyline or huge trucks... The archidecture is very nice and beautiful and makes you enjoy the town very much.. If you planned to stay here for few hours, then now you don´t want to leave before the day is over..

    the Belfry

    by nicoleken Written May 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The only belfry in Holland (1375). Heavily damaged during Worl War II, afterwards restored in its old splendour. In the tower of the belfry stands the wooden statue of Jantje van Sluis, Flanders oldest carillon player. From the tower you have a mangificent view of the beautiful Zealand Flanders scenery.

    Wind Mill in Sluis
    4 more images

    The mill was built in 1739 and was the first stone mill in the region. The mill is called a "smock with shelf". The flour mill ground is used to a brasserie in a restaurant Lindenhoeve to prepare their artisan miller pancakes. You can also buy their flour in the mill inside to make a pancake

    Below down the Mill is the Brasserie en tea-room "Molen van Sluis"

    The mill is still active and open to the public. You can climb the stair and while you are on the top, you have the panoramic view of Sluis and its surroundings. Something not to be missed if you visit Sluis

    Admission Mill Sluis:
    Adults: € 2
    Children: € 1.50 (from 4 to 15 years)

    The Belfort

    The Belfry in Sluis
    4 more images

    It is built on the model of other belfries in Flanders as Ghent and Bruges. It has a built in Gothic style, rectangular building, with a hefty built tower

    With its four corner towers this Belfort manages the silhouette of the city. These towers were used in times of danger as lookout and guard towers

    The tower is 32 meters high and can be climbed daily in the summer months by a stone spiral staircase in the tower. From this point you have a magnificent view over the Zwin region in Knokke Heist

    Sluis is famous to their shops and restaurants, that is why is a favorite place to many people. The town is pretty small but plenty of store around from exclusive boutique to ordinary shop, there is always a choice to everyone's taste

    Also one thing why Sluis are famous too? is their erotic shops, sounds weird maybe! nothing to be ashamed though, I have been a few times inside that shop, and I've seen young and old people inside. You can just rummage or take a look around to their stuff

    one of the streets

    It is really nice to go around the town, because it is small and nice. You don´t feel that speed and hurry here like you can in the big citys.. You can only sit back and relax....
