The mill of Damme, a sight you can not miss when you are in the neighborhood. It is standing next to the canal on one of the most picturesque spots of Damme, a small city near Bruges. The amazing landscape makes it one of the most photographed mills in the world.
Originally on that place there was a wooden standard mill called "Scellemeulen". This mill was owned by the Counts of Flander. In 1267 the mill and its rights were sold to the city of Damme by Countess Margaret of Constantinople, however the city still had to give half of the mill proceeds to the Countess.
The mill is open to the public.You can find at at this address "Damse Vaart West, Damme".
