  • Such a cool place to visit. Functioning wind sawmill, with tours. You get to see the inner workings and learn the history. The tour guides were very thorough in explaining the entire process from log delivery to board shipment. Lengthy discussions on the history of the windmills of the area, too. This is one of those Dutch experiences you expect. Our entire tour was in English.
  • Beautiful operational sawmill. Note however that you won't be able to climb the windmill due to safety issues.
  • A reproduction of a destroyed saw windmill. The tour starts with a short film about the reproduction at that beautiful place. Then you get everything explained by the extrem friendly and engagde voluntariy staff. They all speak Dutch and English, a few German as well. This type of saw mill was one key of the dominating dutch fleet in the golden age of the netherlands.
  • Very impressive. Very nice and knowledgeable staff.
  • We went to ‘het jonge schaap’ with a group of international students. If you are visiting the area, you cannot skip this beautiful mill! It is one-of-kind, beautiful and fascinating. Furthermore, the staff is very hospitable and good-natured. Our organization (ESN Utrecht) would definitely recommend visiting this mill.
