De Riekermolen is a historic polder drainage windmill that dates back to 1636. It sits proudly on the bank of the River Amstel in Amsterdam, alongside a statue of Rembrandt that celebrates the many sketches he made in this area.
Still spinning after all of these years De Riekermolen was once used to drain a large plot of land nearby but it now stands as a testament to a bygone era. Nevertheless, it still spins on Saturdays and Sundays between 12:00 and 17:00, May to September – when the winds are favourable, of course. Unfortunately, the windmill's interior is not available for tours.
