De Gooyer Windmill

De Gooyer

De GooyerDe Gooyer windmill in Amsterdam is one of the 6 windmills that are still left in the city. It was moved to its current position in 1814 when barracks built in 1811 obstructed the wind. The city of Amsterdam purchased the mill and restored it in 1929-1930. A storm in 1972 caused severe damage to the windmill, after a renovation it was again operational in 1976. The mill is still used from time to time and you can also find now a beer brewery in here. It is situated at Funenkade 5, close to the historic centre of the city.
