The best backyard of Eindhoven
The Genneper Water Mill or Gennepermolen is located on the Genneperweg (on the banks of the Dommel) in Eindhoven and is part of Genneper Parken. The oldest recorded mention of the mill dates back to 21 April 1249, being the subject of a gift by one Lodderken and his wife to the Postel Norbertijner Priory. In 1583 – during the Eighty Years' War – the mill was completely destroyed. It was rebuilt in 1587.
