    The wooden bridge can easily be crossed on foot or by bicycle. Around the old mill around other attractions invite you to linger.

    Wienhausen watermill
    Wienhausen is well known for its magnificent monastery. But if you come to the monastery via the mill canal, you should also take a look at the two mill buildings there. A mill in Wienhausen is mentioned as early as 1351. Until the Reformation it belonged to the Wienhausen monastery, after which it came to the state authority. The current mill building on the right bank of the mill canal, however, dates from 1591. It is a single-storey half-timbered building with a variety of decorative shapes. End of the 18th century A new, multi-storey mill building was built on the opposite bank. The old mill was saved from deterioration by a restoration in 1837 and from then on served as a sawmill, warehouse and living space. Since 1906 the Wienhausen grain mill has been working with a turbine drive. But the old mill also received a turbine in 1908: an electricity station was set up in the old building, which supplied the town until 1956. It has served as the town hall since the late 1960s. In 1962 the flour mill ceased operations. The building was renovated in the 1980s and has been used as a home, studio and workshop ever since, while a turbine generates electricity.
