  • The mill itself is not very special but you do have a nice view of the city and its many towers. Also the walk to the mill with the many narrow streets is fr worth.

  • My girlfriend and I have been to Bruges for the new year holiday. In a morning strangely not rainy we decided to wander down is windmills. Located on the channel that runs along the perimeter of the old town, the "Ring". See them live was very exciting, huge and impressive with their shovels. Visiting them is a bit like having to Stonehenge in England, unique attractions visible only in certain parts of the world. Beautiful!

  • Although there are two nice windmills at the end of city, few tourists visit it and it is a good chance to take nice photos as well. You may also enter one of the windmills by paying 3€.
  • One of our favorite things in Brugge was this walk by the windmills and the water. Very peaceful and relaxing
  • Most people coming to town never realise the treasure hidden here. First time close up to a wind mill.
  • Off the beaten path and still an hidden gem. Considering the crowds that visit the city, it is a surprise to see this place almost empty Amaizing windmill with great views!
  • Bruges Art Route Spectacular view!!! It’s like a dessert course after the platter full of Bruges city tour. Before leaving Bruges do come to this place, chit-chat with friends or just simply lie down and see the view. If you are luck you can see colourful hot air balloon and paragliders also. Time Required to visit: No restrictions For Photography: Plenty of options
