Windmill Island Gardens

Windmill Island Gardens

A palette of color awaits you as you wind along the entrance to Holland's treasured island. Tour up into DeZwaan, the only authentic Dutch windmill operating in the United States, grinding locally-grown wheat into flour, which you can purchase in the gift shop. DeZwaan sports a new deck and a restored grinding system. Take a guided tour of the mill with authentically-costumed guides; you might even meet the Dutch-certified miller and see the milling process in action. From the fourth floor deck you can survey 36 acres of manicured gardens, dikes, and canals.
