The “Twiskemolen” is a polder mill that drains the 650 hectare Twiske polder. The “Twiskemolen”, an octagonal thatch-roofed mill that turns on the inside, is one of the many types of mills in the Nederland. The mill has been at its present location since 1975, at the border of Landsmeer and Oostzaan, on the Luigendijkje. The mill was originally built in 1572 in Barsingerhorn. The mill was rebuilt at its present location via a detour: the parts have been stored in New Vennep since 1967 because of plans to rebuild there.
