Curious to find out more about our rich history in the textile industry?
Even before the year 1700 the ‘lakennijverheid’ (broadcloth industry) flourished in Geldrop. Even so, the textile industry only started booming in the year 1850. The great factories, chimneys and labourer and stately homes were built in this period.Visit the weaving mill
Discover Geldrop Castle
You can find Geldrop Castle in the middle of Geldrop’s centre surrounded by a magnificent English landscape garden. “Kasteel Geldrop”, as it is called by the Dutch, was built in 1350 by knight Philips the First of Geldrop, of whom little else is known. You will also find the petting zoo, sensory garden and flower garden on the castle estate. But before you leave, be sure to treat yourself to a delicious lunch at the Kasteelhoeve restaurant.Discover the castle
Visit the mills of Geldrop-Mierlo
In the middle of Mierlo’s centre stands Standerdmolen Mierlo, a true eye-catcher. A standerdmolen is a mill that rests, so to speak, on a mount. When the wind comes from a certain direction, the entire mill can be turned to fully catch the wind.
‘Het Nupke’ is the Brabant way of saying stud, button or bump. The ground where the mill was built in 1843 has a natural elevation to the rest of the landscape. A bump. That is probably the reason why the residents called it ‘Nupke’. It was only during the great restoration in 1979 that miller Wim Vlemmix gave the mill, a national monument, the name ’t Nupke.Visit the mills
