The building

The mill building is two-storeyed and built of quarry stones. The walls are up to one metre thick, plastered and concisely cuboid on the outside at the corners. The hipped roof is covered with clay tiles. In the middle, above the entrance, is a roof house with an elevator. The building is a combination of both, the mill and the miller’s apartment. The interior fittings consist of timber frame walls and wooden beamed ceilings. The heavy mechanics of the mill are supported by massive oak beams.

The miller’s apartment is now furnished with furniture found during restoration work. Today, enriched by some decorative additions, visitors can experience what life may have looked like here 100 years ago.

The flour mill itself extends four floors: the cellar with the inner axle bearings of the water wheels and the angle gear, the ground floor with the millstones and the sack filling, the first floor with the grain and flour storage, classifier and transmission distribution and the attic as a drying floor with sack elevator and deflection for the bucket elevator.

The annex on the right has been used as a pigsty, lavatory and for the locomobile (a ‚mobile‘ steam engine). Today the kitchen and the sanitary facilities for visitors are located there.
