Flour Mill De Hoop
♦ Oosteinde 7, Oud-Alblas ♦ 10 min. ♦
Visit the national monument Flour Mill De Hoop in Oud-Alblas. In addition to the Kinderdijk windmills, the Ablasserwaard has other unique windmills. Flour Mill De Hoop is one of them. The mill was once built in 1844 and has always been in full use in the first 100 years. After the mill was closed for a period of 10 years, the mill was restored from 1972 to 1978. De Hoop is one of the few windmills in Ablasserwaard that is still in full use. The mill grinds about 500 kilos of wheat per week for home bakers and the ground flour is used in all kinds of mixes. Even the pancake mix from Adventure Farm Molenwaard is ground here!

You can try your hand at some different parts of the profession of miller.
