Windmills of Bruges

Tourists in Bruges usually flock to its old town, chocolatiers and Belfry first… and while these are all amazing sights, you don’t want to overlook Bruges’ iconic windmills. Circling the city borders, these fascinating structures are a core part of the city’s history, with roots back to the 13th century.

Though there used to be 25 framing Bruges, now, there are just four main windmills to peruse, each with their own unique features and quirks. In the Sint Janshuismolen Mill, find a small museum and watch flour being ground in real-time. The Nieuwe Papegaai Mill is one you can’t miss, either – an astonishing, tomato red structure that’s bound to inspire gasps of appreciation from those skimming through your holiday albums.
