De Gooyer Windmill, 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.
