Alte Mühle - Frettermühle


#deinsauerland / Outdooractive POIs / Alte Mühle - Frettermühle

This flour mill, which has existed for more than 600 years and has been in family ownership for over 200 years, was still in operation until 1983 and has been preserved with its complete mechanical equipment. Our Cafestübchen in the historic water mill from now on NO longer regularly opens its doors on all Sundays and holidays. However, the Alte Mühle can still be visited by groups of 20 or more people with advance notice. After a detailed guided tour of the mill, we will be happy to serve the groups coffee and homemade cake.

The bakery and mill were in full operation until 1983. After that, the water wheel and grinding mills only ran for private use. With a lot of own work, some unconventional technical solutions and large capital expenditure, the daughter and son-in-law of the last miller Otto Jagemann opened a completely new chapter in the history of the mill in 1989. Since then, it has been generating electricity that is fed into the RWE supply network. However, the old grinding mills have been preserved and with a few simple steps the old technology can be set in motion. One of the two grist gears then runs as in the old days. The other one is open and offers its stone interior to the visitor for inspection. There is also a modern roller mill, a tip peeling machine and a bag elevator of the company's own design. In mid-1995, as the last step for the time being of the enterprising miller family, a café was set up, where groups of 20 or more people can enjoy a piece of cake - baked in their own mill, of course - and a cup of coffee and be transported back in time.
