dUTcH WInDmiILL TRee, next generation windmill


From an old to a modern windmill and now the Dutch government comes up with the next generation windmill tree.
Dutch company One Architecture, Ton Matton and NL Architects were commissioned by the Dutch government for a next generation windmill. The
proposed mill is shaped like a tree and can hold up to 8 turbines and be as high as 120 meters! The Dutch government feels that tree shaped mills are less intrusive in the flat Dutch landscape than the mill-parks they use.
Dutch people are concerned about the environment. They invent machines and things which are environment friendly and useful to human being. That's why they come up with this amazing design.

ThE LanD of WinDmiLLs

AN OLD WINDMILL

A MODERN WINDMILL

The Netherlands is known of its windmills and that's why it is associated with the name,THE LAND OF WINDMILLS
The windmills were developed for:
generating electricity
grinding of grain
milling corn
land drainage
saw milling
I don't know if many of you know that the Netherlands is below sea level.
The drainage mills keep the land behind the dikes free of surplus water thereby creating "polders" (reclaimed land). These mills are still working in some of the older polders. They are driven by catching the wind in their sails which in turn begins the millstones.There are approximately 975 windmills left and can be found dispersed throughout 12 provinces, with the majority residing in South Holland.
The history of the windmills is preserved in six special windmill museums located throughout the Netherlands.
De Valk Windmill Museum in Leiden,
Dutch Open Air Museum in Arnhem
Nieuw-Vossemeer in the province Noord Brabant,
Vijfhuizen near Heemstede,
Koogaan de Zaan,
Schermerhorn.

SoEstDiJk PaLaCE


In the Netherlands there are so many palaces. Nearby our house 5 minutes drive is the SOESTDIJK PALACE. It was the home for over six decades of the late Queen Juliana and her husband, the late Prince Bernhard until their deaths in 2004. Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard are the parents of our present queen, Queen Beatrix. Soestdijk Palace then remained empty and unused for over a year before its opening to the public. The palace was opened to the public in 2007 and since then over 300,000 people visited the palace and the surrounding park. It will be open to public until 2010, the government has to come with a plan about the future destination of the palace. Soestdijk Palace is one of the four official palaces of the Dutch royal family. The palace is named after the village of Soestdijk, in Soest Municipality. Land area is 165 hectares and 17,000 sq meter is the palace.
You should visit it. I pass this palace when I go to Hilversum. I see tourist buses and group of visitors. SOESTDIJK PALACE is amazing!

I make this blog for the foreigners who will be living in this country, THE NETHERLANDS. Foreigners who are engaged or married they have to learn a lot of things about their new home like the culture, architectures, landscape, government, dikes etc. Especially the dutch language which is very important in their social life. It is very difficult if you can not communicate to other people, you can not go anywhere. Most people speak dutch, only few speaks English.
For visitors and readers, this will give you an idea what this country is. This small country ranks no. 5 in the economic stability in Europe. Their architectures like palaces, castles, dikes, ports (air and sea) are amazing.
Their culture is very interesting.
