...sunbathing...

On the ramparts of Heusden, close to the Bergsche Maas River, there are a total of three windmills, all of them corn mills. In times of siege, the windmills ensured that the city was self-sufficient.

 

The city of Heusden received city rights in 1318. Heusden's castle had belonged to successive dukes of Brabant; in 1357 it passed into the hands of the counts of Holland. ramparts and moats were constructed, bringing the castle within the city's fortifications.
