Windmills and more Windmills

Here in The Netherlands there is a special day for celebrating the windmills. On the second Saturday in May, the National Day of Windmills, all 950 windmills and surrounding waters are open to the public for viewing, free of charge. Kinderdijk is one of the most famous areas to visit. Considered one of the country’s icons, windmills have played in the past an important role in boosting the Dutch economy.
