Unique in Westfalen - mill and dwelling combined under one roof

The Schäferkämper watermill, which is well worth seeing, is a technical cultural monument. It is equipped with two overshot water wheels and is located in the middle of a picturesque property.

It was built in 1747/48 and extensively restored in 1993/94 by the local heritage society in cooperation with the NRW Foundation, the town of Erwitte and the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe.

The smell of grain and flour is in the air. "Klipp klapp, klipp klapp": Just like in the old children's song, the jogging shoe rattles. The mill guide takes you on an exciting journey into the past. As if the imposing water wheels were turning back time. Things long past come to life again. And you are there live!
