    The Farchau farm with the former paper mill from 1661, the renovated horse stable from 1928, the glass-roofed flat outbuilding in the garden and the rebuilt boathouse on the shores of the Küchensee are privately owned.
    "The mill wheel is what is known as a Dutch wheel, which was reconstructed from a postcard from around 1900. Namely from a specialized company from Thuringia ”. Incidentally, the reconstruction, carried out in the old sense, is practicable: A turbine inside the mill generates so much electricity that it is enough to supply the entire main building with hot water.
    The listed property itself was bought in 2012 and "has since been completely refurbished in close cooperation with the authorities (monument and nature conservation, water)".

    History of the Farchauer paper mill
    The origin of the Farchauer paper mill lies on the Bäk on the east bank of the Ratzeburg Domsee. There, in 1586, Christopher Gerlich set up a paper mill on the “Mechower Strome”, which passed through his son Hans and granddaughter Catharina to their second husband (the first, Heinrich Cordts, had died) Ernst Bergmann. Bergmann sold the Bäker Mühle to a Hamburg merchant in 1661 and bought the previous copper mill in Farchau from Duke Julius Heinrich in the same year (year of foundation unknown).

    There, Bergmann erected the now renovated two-story (plus ground floor and attic) main building in half-timbered construction. It was in operation as a paper mill for almost 200 years, until the new technology put an end to the old handicrafts' scooping operations and the paper mill was converted into a cloth mill.
    From 1848 - after the paper production was discontinued - the mill was run as an agricultural business before Johann August Theodor Marwitz from Ratzeburg opened a cloth factory here in 1856. Where the papers were before, the cloths were now dried on the upper floor. In the final phase of paper production, the mill received a tapping license, which later passed to the neighboring malt mill (today Hotel Restaurant Farchauer Mühle).

    The former Farchau paper mill has been in operation for many centuries since 1661. Not only worth seeing because of the mill wheel still in operation: the cultural monument directly on the Küchensee houses three luxurious holiday apartments in the former mill building. Brand new three more apartments in the barn.

    Hof Farchau is a cultural monument in the Duchy of Lauenburg. Directly on the Küchensee, three luxurious holiday apartments in a historical ambience have been created in the former mill building. With three other apartments in the barn, Hof Farchau has been an ideal location for friends, families, cooking clubs and nature lovers since 2020.

    When I think of what the mill looked like when I was a child. Great what was made of it. Generally a beautiful corner there.
