How do the people of Amsterdam keep their feet dry?
The Sloten Mill is a functioning polder mill and also the only working mill in Amsterdam that is accessible to the public on a daily basis. The mill is located on the edge of the city, near the Ringvaart, and ensures that the water level in the lower area remains below a certain level. It is a tower mill with a monumental octagon from 1847 rebuilt here. The Sloten Mill has a lift, so that the elderly and disabled can also reach the tower.
In one of the attics there are statues under the old oak beams. Made after figures in paintings by the painter and miller's son Rembrandt van Rijn. Rembrandt had a special bond with Sloten.
For children aged 6 and over, there are special guided tours (after registration) that can be combined with a number of attractions (playground) right next to the mill. The tour through the mill is specifically aimed at the experiences of this age group. For a bite and a snap you can go to a traditional snack bar and to the IJshoeve
After the tour through the mill, adults can visit the adjacent beer brewery for a tour and a tasting. The picturesque former village of Sloten is worth a walk, with the rustic village square, the smallest police station in the Netherlands and an original ban pole.
Monday - Sunday: 10am to 5pm, last tour 4pm
