De Gooyer, Amsterdam

(3.8/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
The Gooyer is a windmill in Amsterdam located between Funenkade and Zeeburgerstraat. It is the tallest wooden mill in the Netherlands. It is registered as a National Monument

The names dates from the around 1609, when the mill was owned by Claes and Jan Willemsz, two brothers from Gooiland. It is also known as \"The Funenmolen\".

The Gooyer consists of a stone foundation topped by a wooden octagonal body. The mill is owned by the municipality of Amsterdam and is not open to visitors. Although the blades are functional, they no longer operate any grinding mechanism.

Next to the mill, in the former Municipal Bathhouse dating back to 1911, is the Brouwerij 't IJ. Contrary to popular belief, neither the mill nor former bathhouse have any historical or architectural relationship, and the mill fulfils no function for the brewery despite the image of a mill being in the brewery logo.

  • Nice to be able to see a windmill in the city if you are only around for a little bit, but you cannot go inside  more »
  • Higher mill in Amsterdam, with a pub full of people, inside, outside, with a very strong smell of beer (of course) special place at the base of a windmill in the middle of the city. But you don't go over. You can eat some sfizioseria without table service, but use the same hands for taking money and food. I mean, we took only the excellent beer, you do not pay the entrance fee and the beers start at 2.50 euros.
