  • The sawmill salamander is a wonderful working history site. It’s free to visit but well worth a donation for the hard work and attention to detail of the brilliant volunteers. The opening tones are.....  more »

  • OMG this is the best place to visit in The Hague. It's only open limited hours so check. This is a fully operational wind saw mill. There's no entry fee ( but they happily take donations, although they don't hassle you for one ) and you can get a guided tour by one of the very friendly volunteers. Ground floor is the saw mill (fascinating in itself), but you also get to go up to the next two floors where all the magic is done. Huge gears, drive belts, shafts, thatch, and lots more. So hard to believe that much of the technology and engineering is some 4 to 5 hundred years old. I. Would suggest that every kid should see this stuff just to understand the implication of this invention. 25 percent of Holland is lower than sea level, so without these wind Mills Holland literally wouldn't exist as it does today. Probably hard to get to without a car, but worth the Uber price. You won't be disappointed with this side trip.
  • Beautiful surroundings to be on the water with a boat.... And a good route along all the beautiful spots
