De Akkermolen is a 17th-century windmill in Zundert, Netherlands. Built around 1605 to replace an earlier windmill, it was used as a gristmill until it was severely damaged in 1950. The mill was bought by the local government and restored in 1961, and it was listed as a national heritage site in 1974.
An earlier windmill had existed on the same location and was mentioned in 1557 as "the mill in the Sundertsch Field" , and this earlier windmill was in its turn a replacement of a nearby watermill, De Poelmolen, which was mentioned in 1438. The earlier windmill was destroyed in 1584 by Spanish troops and the building of a new mill took several years. The new windmill was first mentioned in 1605.
