    The post windmill is the prototype of the Central European windmill. Your mill house is literally suspended on the so-called "house tree" or stand. If the wind changes, the whole mill house has to be turned into the wind again. In the late Middle Ages, this mill type was distributed to thousands throughout central and northern Europe. They were little expandable and susceptible to storm and fire, and yet they never completely displaced the more modern Dutch windmill. Today only a few of them are left. And even fewer are still operational today. One of them is the post windmill in Hänigsen. Built in 1704, according to a document of 1705, it was for all time free from any tax, a right that is still valid today. Shut down in 1945, it was bought by the Müller Schubotz from the Schubotz mill in Celle (No. 86) in 1962 and was used again until 1995. Today, however, it can only be started occasionally. On the annual mill day (every 1st Sunday in September), the mill is open to visitors.Bockwindmühle with rebuilt buck and extensions on both sides of the box. Broken saddle roof.
