    I wouldn't rely on the refreshment stop. The restaurant was closed in spring 2020 and no new operator was in sight.

  • Peter jetzt sehr oft mit Ecki

    Beautiful old mill, which was formerly used as a sawmill and is now a cafe and inn. Worth seeing is the great Mühlensee. Special tip: Listen to the info from the viewpoint.

    The Holtmühle is an old water mill with a medium-sized water wheel. It is located in the Holtmühle district of the same name in Wegberg in the Heinsberg district on the K10. The mill building is on the right side of the Mühlenbach, which begins in Herrath and flows into the Schwalm at the Molzmühle. In front of the mill is a large mill pond, which is crossed by the Mühlenbach in an east-west direction. Originally, five mills were operated with water power on the Mühlenbach.It seems to have gotten its name “Holtmühle” from its location in the area between Wegberg and Rheindahlen, which is still densely wooded today. It is no coincidence that the neighboring mill was called "Buschmühle" and the neighboring settlement "Busch". Whether it was therefore also a saw mill is unlikely. Rather, it is likely to have served as an oil and grain mill since 1397. It was only in her last decades that she dealt exclusively with the milling of grain. Since it had one of the largest reservoirs in the Wegberg area, it had good prerequisites for being able to use its large, medium-sized water wheel with a diameter of 6 m, which ran until 1954. Then the Holtmühle finally became an excursion restaurant. Experience in gastronomy was available. Already between 1870 and 1894 the Holtmüller had run a summer inn with coffee and free boat trips on the pond. (Text abbreviated.)Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holtmühle_(Mühle)
