Rietmolen is a village in the eastern Netherlands. It is located in the municipality of Berkelland, Gelderland.

It was first mentioned in the 1630s as Rytmuelerbrugh, and means "windmill along a stream".[3] Since 1712, the inn Reetmölle was used as a Catholic church. In 1835, a real church was built.[4] In 1931, construction began on a new church. It was finished in 1933, and has a 45 metres (148 ft) tall slender tower which resembles a minaret.[5]
