De Gooyer Windmill

De Gooyer windmill, or Funenmolen is a building located in Funenkade, an old harbor district.

The windmill was used to grind corn, now the De Gooyer is a tourist attraction and also hosts a brewpub called Brouwerij t' IJ. The pub serves, among other brews, the popular Columbus, a strong wheat beer with a whopping 10% alcohol content.

It was built in 1725 in the Oranje Nassau Kazerne district, the windmill was moved in pieces in 1814 to its current location in Amsterdam

There are around 1,000 windmills in Dutch landscape. With the advent of steam power and electricity, windmills were no longer needed to harness the power of the wind. The government wants to restore as much as they can as an icon of the city.
