    This is an old windmill. It is still working but not in function anymore. The mill will spin when it is good wether.
    If you nag the milner long enough he will probably show you around and ask money for it... I don't know, I haven't tried it yet

    It might look like a street vendor. Well probably it is, but it's a good one. The have all the snacks you can think of and the fries are cut fresh every morning.

Achthuizen Nightlife

    It can get very dark at night. When there are no clouds overhead this is the perfect spot to watch stars. Just leave the village for about a mile and everything will be pitch black...

    Dress Code: Go as you like.... No one will see you

Achthuizen Shopping

    Open every day untill 17:00 h exept tuesday afternoon.
    This local shop also funtions as the postoffice.. They sell stamps!!

    What to buy: Before you go to the register make sure that the date on the product you want to buy did not expire. This is a common problem in this shop. It doesn't have that many costumers.

    What to pay: You will pay too much for whatever it is you are buying. This shop is more expansive than any shop in the region. Also the shopowner thinks that Euro's are Guilders he forgets to return eurocents..

Achthuizen Tourist Traps

    by sharky72 Written Aug 30, 2003

    This village is so quiet, nothing really happens!!! On a sunday you might catch a local footballmatch and see people go to church, but that's about it.

    Unique Suggestions: If you're traveling by public transport: be sure to look at the timetable before you wander of in the village. If you wish to leave make sure you're at the busstop 15 minutes earlier.
    Because there aren't any passengers the bus will be way to early... If you stick to the timetable, you'll miss the bus... BEWARE!!

    Fun Alternatives: Start walking...
