Discover the huge Schiedam malt mills at Museummolen De Walvisch. These mills are the tallest in the world, and were exclusively used for the genever industry.
De Walvisch (‘the whale’) owes its name to the Greenland whaling trade that flourished towards the end of the 18th century. Around this time, jenever and its cousin malt wine (moutwijn) emerged as well.
Discover the history of the Schiedam mills through a 180-degree multimedia projection and learn how the mills worked and how the millers lived.
