Located next to the water, easily accessed by car and in walking distance from Utrecht Central Station, lies ‘Molen de Ster’. This authentic and still functioning wood saw mill, is part of a beautiful and quiet 18th century industrial heritage site. The mill yard is unique in its kind: it is the only wood saw mill site in the Netherlands which is complete with a mill, lawn and three monumental miller’s houses. The saw mill is a living monument that breathes craftsmanship and history. Without compromising on its authenticity the beautiful location possesses all types of modern facilities.
The mill can be hired on each day of the week as a meeting space, wedding location or for different types of celebrations. However, on Saturdays during the day, ‘Molen de Ster’ is reserved for the milling: tour guides give free tours, our café is open and when there is enough wind, the millers will show visitors how wind is used to saw wood.
