In a country that’s famous for its windmills, it’s no surprise there are over 1,000 windmills spread across the Netherlands. 

The windmills traditionally harnessed the wind for a variety of purposes, such as grinding grain and draining wetlands, but there are only a few still in commercial operation. 

The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kinderdijk is the best place to see Dutch windmills, with 19 traditional windmills.
