Welcome to the windmills
De Ster and De Lelie at the Kralingse Plas in Rotterdam-Kralingen are the only still operational snuff and spice mills. De Ster is originally from 1829 and has been rebuilt twice after a fire. De Lelie is from 1777 and still in its original state. More about the history of the mills can be found here.
With sufficient wind, the mills are also in operation. The millers are happy to explain the production of snuff, grinding of spices and the operation and history of the mills. The mills are kept in operation by volunteers.
The mill is still closed. Due to the corona measures, we can still not allow visitors to the mill. Our spice shop in the mill is open during normal opening hours. So you can come by for a tin of delicious wind-milled spices!
