Schiedam Off The Beaten Path: 5 reviews and 6 photos

  Spoeling Schuit next to Mill "the Noord"
by mafootje

A tourist in Schiedam will often visit the Windmills that there are, and also may visit a Jenever distillery. But Schiedam has more than just that there are lot's of small and larger parts of history to be found in this town.

This boat is one of those.

When jenever is created it will leave a residu. This residu was transported in these boats instead of throwing it away. This product was used by the farmers to feed to their farm animals.

The boat on this picture was restored by students of the Company School of Wilton Fijenoord and placed here in 1988.
