Bike Touring Highlight
High chestnut trees shade the Holxer Mühlenhof, whose courtyard borders on his 1816 residence and his small, iron-framed mill building dating back to 1825, while a 19th-century bakery is set back somewhat. A stone bridge with an adjacent ford crosses the Hardau just below the mill, while visitors from the cobblestone street, which leads to the edge of the Hardautales to Suderburg, approach the mill. After a few steps, you are standing in front of the mighty, undershot waterwheel, under which the steel creek flows into the Hardau, so that the mill is located, so to speak, on two "rushing streams". In 1321 this mill was first mentioned, which was used as a grain, Grütz, and Bakemühle. Probably until the 1920s, she had two mill wheels, and until 1950, the mill worked only with water power. Then the miller stopped operating. The mill equipment was preserved, but fell into the aftermath of the waterwheel. In 1983, the owner renovated the mill, she got a new water wheel and can be put into operation again for grinding demonstrations.

Away from any hustle and bustle, in the middle of a grove lies the water mill Holxen, which dates back to 1321 and is still in operation today. They stand on a small bridge and are very close to the waterwheel. Take your time and listen to how the water power of the steel creek sets the wooden waterwheel in motion.Source: lueneburger-heide.de/natur/etappe/11200/Rundwanderweg-Suderburg---Holxen---Holdenstedt---Holxen---Suderburg-am-Wassererlebnispfad-Hardautal

The water mill Holxen is one of the few water mills that still has a working wooden water wheel. For many, the water wheel was replaced by a turbine around 1900, it is a museum mill. It exists since 1321.heideregion-uelzen.de/regionale-ausflugsziele/historische-staetten-bauten/historische-staetten-der-region/wassermuehlesuderburgerland.de/html/ausflugsziele/holxer_wassermuehle.htmniedersaechsische-muehlenstrasse.de/index.php?id=75
