Enjoy stunning views from the mill

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

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.

The museum

Discover the history of the Schiedam mills through a 180-degree multimedia projection and learn how the mills worked and how the millers lived.
