Windmills in Zeeland

An emblem of our ingenuity and industry, the windmill still features prominently in the landscape of Zeeland. Once we depended for our livelihoods on these winged giants. Now, the remaining 70 windmills in Zeeland are more a reassuring landmark to visit and a dignified icon of a productive past, when they ground out flour, timber, oil and barley. There are various models of wind-driven mills in Zeeland – when we say mill, we usually mean windmill.
