Since about 1815 stood on the Gießhausbastion a windmill, which destroyed a fire in 1832. In 1833, a windmill was built at the same place by mill master builder Berend Erling. Since 1889 she is owned by the city of Bremen. In 1898 and 1950, it was restored after being damaged by fire or warfare. Until 1947, the mill was in operation as a flour mill. In 1998, it was completely renovated according to the specifications of the State Office for the Preservation of Monuments. The wing and the gallery were renewed and the lower two floors were converted into a restaurant.Construction, technology
