Check out the Molendriegang Leidschendam

In the 17th century, seven mills were built in Stompwijk near Leidschendam to drain the surrounding polders. The northernmost three, consisting of three octagonal mills, were preserved and were fully operational until 1951. Now, these permanently inhabited mills are a reserve pumping station for the Nieuwe Driemanspolder. They may be quite old, but they still work!

 

For lovers of photography, Dutch views and walks past historic locations, the Molendriegang is the place to be. And did you know you can iceskate here too in the winter? If you spend a day in Leidschendam-Voorburg, don’t miss this beautiful and unique location!

Did you know that..
