Bike Touring Highlight
The windmill in fog is one of the few still fully functioning windmills from historic times in North Frisia. It was built in 1771 on the highest point of the island.
In this Erdholländerwindmühle peeled barley in the first years. In 1922, the windmill was rebuilt into a cellar dutchman, and an adjoining shed was used to store the grain. In 1963, the grinding operation was discontinued. On the initiative of the island's pastor Pörksen, an association kept the mill and transformed the building complex into a museum of local history. The mill exhibits the history of the house, the flora and fauna of the island and the sea, pre- and protohistoric finds and folklore objects.The opening times
the mill and the local museum are:
daily from 10.30am - 1pm and 2.30pm - 5pm
Mondays to 16.00 clock and Sundays from 11.00 clock
Museum open from April to Octoberamrumer-windmuehle.com
