    The Hexenlochmühle, formerly Dreistegenmühle, lies in the gorge-like witches' hole (sometimes also called Hexenlochtal, but uncommon among the local population) in the Black Forest between St. Märgen and Furtwangen on the district of Furtwangen-Neukirch.It is the only mill in the Black Forest with two water wheels. In 1825 the part with the smaller waterwheel was built as a nail forge. Later, the part with the larger waterwheel was added as a sawmill. Finally, the part with the smaller waterwheel was rebuilt as a workshop for the Uhrengestellmacherei.Since 1839 the mill is family owned; the current owner in the fourth generation is Karl-Friedrich Trenkle.The large water wheel of the mill has a diameter of 4 m, over which per second approx. 300 l water of the hay brook run. It has an output of up to 13 hp. This still drives a high-speed and circular saw. These are still running for demonstration purposes, but not sawn anymore. But since the late 1980s, in addition to the two water wheels via a turbine operated a generator that provides more power than is needed in the mill.The mill houses a restaurant with an open-air terrace and shops selling Black Forest specialties and souvenirs.
