Hüven - Hüvener Mühle 02

The photo shows the Hüvener mill, this is to be found one of the last completely preserved combined windmill and water mill of Europe, in the administrative district Emsland in western Lower Saxony of Germany.

 

The mill is illustrated on the coat of arms of the "Mill Union Lower Saxony and Bremen" and one of the tourist attractions in the surroundings of the hilly Geestlandschaft and the Hümmling.

 

In 1802 the water mill was built, in 1850 a windmill was built up on the water mill. The combination of two mills was up to now unique in Lower Saxony at this time.
