    At the power mill there is a campsite and a hotel with a restaurant.
    According to the website of the operator, the mill itself was originally a Lohmühle.
    The first written mention should go back to the 17th century.
    Lohmühlen were used at that time, in order to win the tanning material needed for leather tanning. With the help of the mill tannery-containing oak bark (= Lohe) was crushed.
    The raw material was won in so-called "Luhhecken" (Lohhecken).
    These were oak forests, which were managed in the Nierderwaldbetrieb to this end.
