Hubert mill

The Hubert mill in Wenduine is a wooden corn mill that can be compared to the Dutch wip mills. The mill was built in 1880 by Jan Hubert. Hubert is the name of an important miller family on the North Sea coast. The mill remained in use professionally until 1934, after which it became a tourist attraction.

During World War II, the German occupiers removed the mill's sails. After the war, it was restored and classified as a landscape in 1946, along with the adjoining miller's cottage.

A severe spring storm in 1992 caused significant damage to the mill, prompting the municipal council of De Haan to purchase it and restore it to its original state. In 1993, it was protected as a monument. Interesting detail: the weather vane in the shape of a mermaid.

The fascinating story of this mill and its miller can be discovered through virtual reality in the Molenaarshuys: put on a VR headset and be transported back to early 20th-century Wenduine for 10 minutes.
