A windmill is a kind of power machinery that does not require fuel and uses wind as an energy source. At first it was only used for grinding flour and the like, but later it was also used for sawing wood and papermaking.

People often refer to the Netherlands as the "land of windmills". One-third of the country's area is only 1 meter above sea level, and nearly a quarter of it is below sea level. Windmills had played a huge role in the process of reclaiming land from the sea in the Netherlands.

The largest windmill in Netherlands is several stories high, with wings as long as 20 meters. At the end of the 18th century, there were about 12,000 windmills across the country.
