    The mill was built in the second half of the 15th century and belonged from 1647 to the house Steprath. This gave the mill its present name.

    The Steprather Mühle is a tower windmill on the left Lower Rhine and the landmark of Geldern-Walbeck. It is the oldest still fully functioning windmill in Germany and was for centuries the most important business enterprise in the municipality.

    The Steprather mill in the Geldern district Walbeck is worth seeing. It is a so-called tower windmill, about 19 meters high and has a wing span of about 28 meters.
    The mill works with a ratio of 1: 6, which means that one turn of the wings causes six turns of the millstones. The Steprather Mühle is Germany's oldest fully functioning windmill
