    The Windmill

    by KennetRose Written May 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Post mill, Brielle

    It just wouldn't be a Dutch town, would it, without a windmill?

    In fact, although Brielle is close to an industrial area, it has many of the characteristics and charm of the quintessential Dutch town in the travel guides. It's just mercifully free of the busloads of tourists!

    My neighbour who calls himself a "molinologist" and goes to international conferences about windmills would no doubt tell me that this particular windmill is what's known as a post mill - but I knew that anyway!

    BRIELLE KOOPMANSTRAAT

    I regularly take visitors from abroad (or in fact, if they are from somewhere in The Netherlands too) on a little stroll through Brielle.Showing them some highlights of our little town but leaving enough to explore later!

    The following 30-odd tips are a description of the walk that I usually take. With a liquid reward at the end!

    All photo's are made by my friend Nigel from Andover (UK) who kindly let me use them for this website.

    The reward at the end

    BRIELLE TOUR GROUP

    Near the end of the walk (back in the main shopping street and only 5 minutes away from home) we stop by my friends Tanja and Martin who own a well-reputed wine and liquor shop. My guests and me are always treated to a glass of the local liquor (Molenbitter) and then the guests usually browse around and wonder at the huge collection of wines and other spirits.

    BRIELLE

    I like this picture of me taken from the back. Shows I talk with my hands sometimes. During these walks I am always reminded that there is so much to tell about Brielle and that I still don't know half of it.

    We're on three quarters of our walk now. In summer the harbour is alive with people and often cultural events take place. When it becomes dark, the harbour is illuminated with hundreds of little lights.

    BRIELLE WINDMILL

    A Dutch self-respecting town would not be without a windmill. This one is called 't Vliegend Hert (The flying deer) and was rebuilt various times after burning down. It still grinds flour every Friday.

    The old harbour

    BRIELLE MAARLAND ZZ

    At this point we're only 7 minutes from starting point. But of course one looks around, takes pictures so it takes a little longer.
    Turning a corner one finds oneself at the old harbour where now various yachts and boats are moored.

    Visit Willem of Orange's Church

    by Rixie Updated Sep 24, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restored organ, St. Catharine's, from 1854

    St. Catharine's Church was built in fits and starts. The foundation was laid in 1417, but the church was destroyed by fire in 1456. In 1462 the townspeople started over again, building a little at a time, but in 1520 their funds ran out. Their ambitious plan to build the largest cruciform church in the country was never realized, but St. Catharine's is nevertheless a beautiful church.
    Willem of Orange and his bride, Mary Stuart, worshipped here before leaving to take the throne of England.
