Really great! Very nice experience walking through the mill with explanations from Müller, even our three-year-old was all ear! Tasting of the oil was so good that we ordered potatoes with quark and oil in the restaurant and it was soooo delicious!!! If then the healthy and delicious oil was also taken for home, there was even in a nice clay jug with the mill on it. We're happy to come back!
Today we went to Straupitz. Our goal was the Dutch windmill. A very nice facility. We were fascinated that the technology of 100 years ago still works today. Linseed oil is still produced here. We got a brief outline of the process for producing the oil. The windmill itself could be visited on all floors. There was a video to explain it.
