Stoomgemaal Halfweg (Halfweg steam pump) : Michelin's recommendations

This steam pump is the oldest still working in the world. Built in 1853, it originally had a pumping capacity of 25,000 litres of water per second. One of the two boilers has now been dismantled and you can see the pump mechanism.
