- MAPS: Google Maps
The Luizenmolen is a wooden windmill. The current windmill was inaugurated in 1999, and is an identical reconstruction of the former Luizenmolen which was transferred to Anderlecht in 1864. The mill was still present in the memories of many inhabitants of Anderlecht and was painted and drawn by many artists. It is now the only working windmill in the Brussels region. It is a tourist attraction in the green area of Anderlecht. The Luizenmolen is one of the curiosities you have to see when you walk across the Pajottenland. It is also an educational centre for schools. Since 1999, an annual popular and folkloric festival is organised there in the month of June.
The Luizenmolen is a listed monument since 8 February 2007.
The mill is the property of the association "asbl Luizenmolen-Andelecht vzw".
