The Dutch have become very innovative when it comes to keeping out the water. They have built dykes, fortifications and last but not least wind and watermills to create new land. The oldest mill is a watermill that dates back to the eighth century. These techniques were used to pump dry hundreds of lakes and swamps and to prevent land from flooding. Today, with over a thousand windmills throughout the Netherlands, windmills are characteristic of the Hollands landscape and a symbol of the Dutch struggle with water. Kinderdijk is the most famous group of polder mills and is UNESCO World Heritage listed. Some gigantic windmills of Schiedam , over 40 meters high, played an important role in the production of jenever (Dutch gin). Ideal for Gifting The joys of beauty are meant to be shared.
