De Genneper Watermolen

Picture 2178

This is the Genneper Watermill (De Genneper Watermolen) which sits a little less than a mile away from my house.

Picture 2179

The earliest writings referring to the mill date to 1249. Originally it had two wheels, one for grain and the other for oil. The mill is also featured in three paintings by Vincent van Gogh.


This mill has burned and been rebuilt several times over the past 750ish years or so. The most recent major renovation was in the 1960s, but in 1998 the roof burned off so there were some minor changes made. The wheel used to have a little roof over the top of it, but that wasn't replaced after the fire.

Currently the mill houses a feed shop on one side and a great place to buy flour on the other side (fitting for a mill I suspect).

I've found some great things here. I like their Super Volkoren bread mix a lot, and it works great in my bread machine. I was happy to discover that they have cornmeal there since that was proving to be a rather tricky item to track down. They also have small chocolate chips which a lot of people say they have trouble finding. I haven't bought any because I think they're a rather dear price at €5.95 per kilo. In addition to the aforementioned items, they also have several different kinds of cake mixes, spices, and dried fruit to add into your baked goods. Their website seems to have vanished, but if it reappears I'll amend this to add the info.

Very neat to visit your mill! I think I'll post things like this as well. What a great idea. I love to "visit" places like this because it is unlikely that I will ever leave the states.

Heads up, I'm coming to the Netherlands right now to buy a bread mix from this charming mill! Please allow me to sleep on your floor while I await my return flight.

What a cool building. I love old buildings. Thanks for including a little bit of history, what an interesting place to live.

This is indeed charming ;-) I think there is a romance about old buildings like these & esp. when they keep them running & restore them. Thanks for sharing about this!

When I think of mills in the Netherlands I always think of the classic long windmills of Holland.
Even though I am a big fan of Van Gogh it’s the first time I noticed this painting. Thank you for sharing this I love old building and historic sites. I enjoyed your photos.

Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if
blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
