Windmill De Zandhaas: passion in the polder

When you think of the Netherlands, images of windmills surrounded by a flat colorful polder landscape in the water pop up in your mind. In fact it’s one of the oldest Dutch crafts: Miller.
But what is it like nowadays?

Watch the unique story about Joris en Jan and their love and passion for Molen De Zandhaas in Santpoort, very close to Haarlem. Let these 8 minutes surprise you! Don’t worry expats: there are subtitles in English.

On Saturday,  March 28, 2015 expatsHaarlem will visit this very windmill! Have you never visited Santpoort before? This is an extraordinary moment to do so! A little village surrounded by the beautiful nature of Nationaal Park De Kennemerduinen in the outskirts of the city Haarlem.
