Bike Touring Highlight
One of the most beautiful sights in the city is the princely watermill with the mill colony. Centuries ago, everything looked very different, because in the area of the street and the outdoor pool stretched a small dammed lake. This lake was in front of the city wall and the adjacent castle Altona. Where today runs the Graf-Egbert-Straße, once stood the castle and was the widow's residence of the Counts of Bentheim. Remains of the city wall were rebuilt here. See photo of the Ruisdael painting around 1650 (source Wikipedia).
