    In 1456, the Lüttelforster mill first appeared in the annals of Haus Bocholtz, a manor in Waldniel. It belonged to the Dahlhof and was therefore called Dahlmühle at this time. By inheritance in 1591, the farm and mill were separated from the headquarters in Waldniel and given to the spouses Sibert von Bocholtz, who leased them. The mill was operated as an oil and grain mill. I don't know when the mill was called "Lüttelforster Mill". Around 1900 a restaurant was set up in the mill. The mill retained its right of storage until the milling operation ceased in 1954. The Lüttelforster mill today shows itself as a "hotel restaurant" with a large iron water wheel as a landmark and an original pan mill as jewelry in the dining room.

    The parking lot at the Lüttelforster Mühle is only closed to guests and by a barrier when the restaurant is closed.
