Moulin de la Roome


Spoken languages : anglais, français, néerlandais

This windmill was erected in 1645 along a Roman road originating in Cassel, but it was toppled by a brutal storm in 1927. It lay in ruins until the 20th century, when at last it was restored and set in motion, once again, to make flour. The Roome postmill has one pair of millstones and a sifting area. The miller himself shows you round the mill and up to the top, from which there's a magnificent view on the hills of Flandres. The Table du Minotier restaurant at the foot of the mill serves traditional local cuisine.
