A palette of color awaits you as you wind along the entrance to Holland's treasured windmill. DeZwaan windmill, the only authentic Dutch windmill operating in the United States, is a five-story marvel.
Take a guided tour of the mill with authentically-costumed guides; you might meet the Dutch-certified miller and see the mill in action, grinding locally grown wheat into flour. After recent restoration projects, DeZwaan sports a new deck and a restored grinding system. From the fourth-floor deck you can survey 36 acres of manicured gardens, dikes, and canals.
The Gardens are also home to an Amsterdam street organ, a hand-painted Dutch carousel, children's garden and playground.
In the spring, see more than 100,000 tulips in bloom at the Gardens, including a mass planting of more than 60,000 blooms.
