The Danish Windmill has become one of the largest tourist attractions in Iowa and each year its popularity grows. You can take a guided tour of the windmill which starts with a 15 minute video. Climb to the top and see the shuttered sails, grinding stones, and gearing made of wood and iron cogs. See how it all works together to grind wheat and rye flours with wind as they did over 150 years ago. Visit the new VikingHjem depicting the life of a Viking Smithy in 900 A.D. Open daily. Located just off Interstate 80 at Exit 54, Elk Horn, Iowa, it makes for a great stopping place. No Passport Required!
