Milling Techniques from 1900

Visitors can go on a journey into the past and learn how milling developed from the 19th century onward and see with their own eyes how windmills worked a hundred years ago. On top of that, young and old visitors can listen to exciting and funny anecdotes about the introduction of the new wind-powered technology.

From Grain to Cookie

Baking cookies like people did 100 years ago: The guided tour of the post mill in Marzahn starts at the very beginning - with the cultivation of grain. Visitors learn how the grain is grown, harvested and milled before preparing the cookie dough. Finally, the crispy treats are eaten right away.
