Fodor's Expert Review Delftse Molen de Roos

Delft Windmill

Just to the west of Oude Delft is Phoenixstraat, where you'll find this working flour mill that originally stood on the town ramparts. Parts of the mill date back to 1679. The platform encircling the mill about halfway up was restored in 1990, and the whole building underwent a second, crowd-funded restoration in 2014. Unused for many years, grain is once again milled here and available for purchase in the Ambacht shop on the ground floor. When the miller is working, you can usually climb up the vertiginous stairs to get a view from the platform as the sails swoosh by.
