    Scenically beautifully situated, surrounded by a lot of forest and away from any car noise, the Höllmühle is a popular destination and starting point for hikes through the valley of the Zwickauer Mulde, Rochsburg or the wider area.
    Our cozy restaurant, the idyllic terrace and the boathouse with boat rental invite you to linger. Free-roaming animals delight young and old. In stylishly furnished guest rooms, you can enjoy the peace and relax.
    The convenient location between Leipzig and Chemnitz offers further scope for a variety of activities.The history of the mill
    Already around the year 1300 was here the "Chapel of miserable Marie". Later, a mill was created in the gorge (Huhle), of which probably the name is derived. The Höllmühle exists since 1538.
    It was mostly used as a grinding and cutting mill. In 1572, the mill was rebuilt from scratch. At that time, Countess-Schonburg hunters "sat" on the mill, who were referred to as chief forester. Later, the Höllmüller took over the pond management and in the last century, he successfully worked for the franchise rights. Thus, the mill operation was connected with the restaurant. The now more than 425-year-old mill was re-opened in 1992 after a comprehensive reconstruction and modernization. ☺️👍🏻

    Small restaurant right on the Höllteich. The Höllmühle is the starting point for many tours in the area. There are also small animal enclosures at the mill with e.g. Chickens or peacocks.
