    Windmill De Valk - museum

    LEIDEN WINDMILL DE VALK

    This is taken on the bridge between Morsstraat and Haarlemmerstraat and opposite Beestenmarkt.
    Windmill De Valk (the falcon) is seen here in the background.
    That windmill can be visited and shows you how grain is grinded (which it did until 1925). It is now a museum about Dutch milling and I went here around 1970, remembering climbing the wooden stairs and ladders as a 6 year old.
    The details below are for the mill museum.

    Windmill De Put

    LEIDEN WINDMILL DE PUT

    This is a replica of the windmill that stood here in Rembrandt days in the 17th century. Rembrandt was born in the street just across the bridge which is also a reconstruction.
    It has a little playground in front of it and a war memorial to WWII.
    Isn't it just postcard-pretty?

    Windmill Museum

    Windmill Museum

    Monday was the only day we could travel outside Amsterdam and the drawback was that many museums close on Mondays. The windmill in Leiden was one such museum...it still makes for great pictures though.
