When I arrived in the Netherlands, how can I not go to see the windmill? Obviously, in the matter of windmills, the Dutch have already replaced the inventor Greeks and become the spokesperson of the big windmill.
There are two classic sights in the Netherlands for windmills - one for children with 18 windmills in Rotterdam and the other for windmills in Sandeans, not far from Amsterdam. Although there are no children's dikes, the scenery is first class.
Since the 16th century, Sandeans' windmills have begun to take on the responsibility of the local source of power now, if you get inside these huge windmills, you can see the strong winds from the Atlantic Ocean. The fan blades of the windmill are driven, and then the internal gears are pulled to grind the flour, make paint, or pump excess water for irrigation.
The weather in the Netherlands is always cloudy and the sun and rain always alternate alternately. In the windmill village of Sandeans, the poems of the vast fields and vertical waterways of the lowland countries were still in the first second, and the dark clouds and fierce winds of the next second ruled the world. But I prefer this kind of gloomy stratus - I feel that the windmill giant is about to come out!
There is no doubt that the Dutch have carried forward the windmills. In the windmill village with dense rivers, there are old-fashioned Dutch wooden houses, authentic restaurants and cheese factories and wooden shoe factories. Wrong, here is the concentration of the Dutch style.
The Netherlands is known as the country of windmills. This is because most of the land in the Netherlands is a low-lying land. In ancient times, it was often necessary to fight against floods, so windmills were widely used as equipment for drainage and milling. Zaanse Schans, the famous windmill village in the Netherlands, is also the closest one to the Dutch first Amsterdam, about 15 km away, and can be reached by train from the central railway station.
This is an old and beautiful village, next to the banks of the Zanhe River, a variety of windmills and colorful small houses, together form a quiet and beautiful European country style, full of small bridges, flowing water, people's rustic The country style is like being in the water town of Jiangnan, but the houses here are more charming, and the pastoral scene in the fairy tale world. Although the windmill village in the off-season is cold and bleak, there are very few tourists, which is extraordinarily quiet and peaceful.
Zaanse Schans is the closest village from Amsterdam if you wanna see the beautiful traditional wind mills village! it is only an hour away by train and a short walk. Lovely town would love to come back :) #happynewyear #netherlands

In Amsterdam, you see an absolutely free and diverse world, while in the countryside, It is their soul. You will see a completely different world in the village of Sans Anse (Netherlands Windmill Village), which is only 2 km away from Eminem.

In the 17th century, the most rapid period of economic development, the windmill once provided a strong source of power for the Dutch, and thus became one of the symbols of the Netherlands.
