Kempen Tönisberg - Kastenbockwindmühle 08

The windmill (also stand mill, box mill or german windmill) is the oldest

milltyp in Europe.


The Core feature of this type of mill is that the entire mill house on a

single thick pile (the "buck") is, where it can be rotated by the lever

effect from beam in the wind. This method, however, was not optimal

and very difficult. The windmill, it was built in 1802, is an attraction in Tönisberg.
