A graduation mill is a plant for salt production. This brine is passed through brushwood. The water evaporates and the salt content rises.
Above all, these old graduation towers are impressive buildings. For example, this is 158 meters long and 18 meters high. The air around it is very salty, which should be very healthy. Almost like a holiday at the lake.
The graduation tower is in the middle of the city. So if you have enough salt, it's easy to head to your hotel, train station, car or restaurant.

From the heyday of salt production, one of the original ten graduation towers is still fully functional and accessible in the spa gardens. The graduation tower is over two hundred years old (built in 1806), about 158 meters long and 18 meters high, and serves as an outdoor inhalatory for guests of the city. The saturation and moisture saturation achieved in the vicinity of the graduation mill is similar to a marine climate. In the program "The most popular sights of Hessen" of the HR (2007) this graduation house came in second place. The maintenance and care takes over the "association of the friends of the graduation factory e. V. ", whose members have collected over € 900,000 since 1997 to preserve this cultural asset.
