Ondermolen D - Schermerhorn

N 52.600123 / E 4.873408

52 windmills once kept the De Schermer polder (east of Alkmaar) dry. In 1928 their role for dewatering had ended and most mills disappeared. At present, 11 mills remain. In 1969-1970, this mill was professionally restored and used as a museum mill. The Museum Mill is an operating water mill; the bottom mill of a so-called 'two-course'. The water from the polder was ground up about four meters by means of stepped drainage (each mill brought the water a little higher). The mill can be climbed into the hood. A short introductory film in six languages is shown in the reception area next to the windmill.
