Leiden Windmill, De Volk

Originally built to grind grains, this fascinating mill is very interesting to tour.    A model of the mill
Then you begin the climb up toward the top of the mill

The base of the mill stays in place and the top rotates in  order to catch the wind.  Quite the view out from here

But it is challenging climbing up and down

Thursday, off to Gent and Brugges.
