本杰明De Kat, De Kat, means cat. Of course, this is the only windmill in the world that makes paints. The name of the windmill in the Zaanse Windmill Village is very unique. There are five windmill mills lined up by the lake in the village: Pulenburg wearing a crown, cat, seeker, lamb, and bull. ☆History: The workshop was originally built in 1646. It was originally an oil factory. It was rebuilt after being destroyed by a fire in 1872; it was used until 1904 and was partially demolished; due to the needs of urban development, In 1960, the factory was relocated from its original site and installed on the top of an old warehouse called De Kat; it later became a workshop for making paint using traditional methods. ☆Geography: The mill is located in the windmill village of Zaanse, 15 kilometers north of Amsterdam. ☆ Transportation: Take the Sanjiu No. 1 bus from Amsterdam to Zaans Museum-Zaanse Schans stop and walk into the windmill village. ☆Photography: It was already afternoon when I arrived at the Windmill Village... First, watch the west side view of the Windmill Village from the observation deck. The sun is shining from the west, and part of the image is overexposed when shooting. For example, in the last three pictures, the tenth picture is the original picture, and the original picture is reduced 1:1. The sunlight and the first windmill "Pollenberg with a crown" are cut out to form the eleventh picture; then it is 9:16 Cut the "little sheep" to the twelfth image. ☆Impression: In front of the observation deck and the windmill, the nickname cat, always reminds me of the "magic cat" in the musical "Cat". "Cat" is adapted from T·S·Elliott's "The Cat in the World": ...you noticed a cat in your meditation. The cause, I tell you, is always similar: his mind is immersed in Concentrated thoughts. Its meaning, its meaning, its name and its meaning: his incomprehensible singular name. I remember that I did this poem translation several years ago, and I commented on Mao Mao. At that time, I seemed to say: the similarities are all soft and graceful. The cat and the woman, the humanities and the scenery, in the sadness and desolation, showed the newness. The oppressive longings of life and the hidden fears. But after all, desire is the mainstream; in particular, "charm" and "dao" show a humorous humor toward oneself and others. Then, through the closed and depressing night, enjoy the sun, windmill and wind peacefully and up and down on the high observatory of life! Despite the afterglow of the setting sun, the stream is flowing like blood. The cat lay quietly, Shi Gemumo.

The windmills of Zaanse Schans are one of the most famous places to see these historical windmills in The Netherlands. Follow a day trip or take the sightseeing bus to reach these beautiful windmills. They are housed in a wonderful little site so it is easy to get around, there are also food options around and a shoe making factory. The nearby museum has a shop too if you like to get some souvenirs. It can get rainy so bring along an umbrella or raincoat.
One of the places I definitely will try to go back to again.
Zaandam, not far from Amsterdam. Its the fantastic destination in every season.

The first thing I wanted to do when I arrived in Amsterdam was to visit the windmill. My friend then took me to a place where I can experince Netherlands decades ago. I enjoy the windmill, the amazing scenery, the hut, classical netherlands village style. Everything was just perfect. #merrychristmas
Zaanse schans is located just 30 minutes away by train from Amsterdam Centraal Station. It is the closest place to see the windmills, where the people who live here still use windmills to produce some oils, and also other products. Here, you can also buy some traditional cocoa which taste so delicious. There are also cute houses around the village #HalloTrip
Exploring Zaanse Schans 💚
The Netherlands is known as the country of windmills. This is because most of the land in the Netherlands is a low-lying land. In ancient times, it was often necessary to fight against floods, so windmills were widely used as equipment for drainage and milling. Zaanse Schans, the famous windmill village in the Netherlands, is also the closest one to the Dutch first Amsterdam, about 15 km away, and can be reached by train from the central railway station.
This is an old and beautiful village, next to the banks of the Zanhe River, a variety of windmills and colorful small houses, together form a quiet and beautiful European country style, full of small bridges, flowing water, people's rustic The country style is like being in the water town of Jiangnan, but the houses here are more charming, and the pastoral scene in the fairy tale world. Although the windmill village in the off-season is cold and bleak, there are very few tourists, which is extraordinarily quiet and peaceful.
The bustling European market, the famous Amsterdam Water City, will keep you entertained, and of course you will definitely visit the famous Dutch windmill town. The Netherlands is situated on the west wind belt of the earth. It blows the west wind all the year round. At the same time, it is close to the Atlantic Ocean. The sea and land winds are endless for many years. At the beginning of the end stage, the windmills are only used for people to grind.
Zandan Windmill Village, a famous Dutch folk park. Ten kilometers from Amsterdam. Three wooden windmills are kept in the village, and more than a dozen traditional Dutch wooden buildings are scattered to showcase the traditional Dutch folk culture. Walking into the Dutch countryside, watching the exotic pastoral scenery, it seems to enter the dreamlike world of fairy tales.
