There are about a thousand old mills in the Netherlands, an invention that radically changed the landscape. On the outskirts of Alkmaar there is one where you can even take a look. We will gladly take you to the place where grain has been ground into flower for more than four centuries! Due to modern times this process is limited to only the Saturdays to honour this tradition and help special needs people to give them purpose and a job they can enjoy. You will get a glimpse in the heart of this Dutch symbol during this tour. In the attached shop, run by the people needing special care, you can buy all sorts of grain and pastry products. They are more than happy to help you. Another Dutch Icon is the stroopwafel that is known worldwide. After the tour in the mill, we organize a private workshop and bake our very own stroopwaffels together!. And although the shape is not always a succes, we can summarize the taste in 1 word every time: delicious!
Let me introduce myself … I’m Ellen, 40 years old and living in Heiloo. A village just below Alkmaar. You can rightly call me a true Noordhollandse, because I have been living in this region all my life. As a teenager I already dreamed of showing people showing them the real Netherlands. During my tours I not only tell you things worth knowing about the Netherlands from the past, but especially what life is like here right now. What is on the dinner table, how do our kids grow up, how do we think about social issues and why are many Dutch people speaking English.
Coffe or Tea is included
