Merian Gärten, Vorder Brüglingen 5,
Covid-19: Due the current situation the museum remains closed.
The mill from the 16th century lies in the heart of the Merian Gardens. Even though flour is no longer produced here, the water-powered wheel is still in use. The impressive gearing mechanism can be seen inside the mill, and it is easy to imagine how wheat, rye or millet was ground here in past centuries. A small exhibition with historical pieces tells the story of milling from the bronze-age to modern-day industrial production.
