    Windmill De Roos

    by OlafS Written Mar 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Definitely one of the most impressive windmills in this country is De Roos, a successor of a windmill built on a rondelle in the town wall as early as the 16th century. This wooden mill was replaced by a brick one in 1679, of which the hexagonal substructure of the present mill is probably a part. A miller's house was built against the substructure in 1728. At an unknown moment, but before 1822, the upper half of the mill was replaced by the current one. Several restorations have saved the windmill from falling into decay.

    Typical architecture

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walking around town, you will notice many beautiful merchant and patrician houses with gables.

    Delft is also known as "Little Amsterdam" because of these houses and the many canals.

    Another lovely building that we saw during our stroll around the city is this one. Notice the coats of arms above the door. I have no idea what this building is used for.

    Oude Delft (Old Delft) is a canal and strolling along it you find open boats in the water with outdoor terraces on them. That way the restaurants and coffeehouses and pubs extend their space.
