    Now it becomes historical: Who would suspect a former mill at this place? Reproduced mill wheels are impressive in the rock. Numerous Dokutafeln give info to the background. Above the mill is the passage from the mill race. A refuge and the stamp 82 of the Harzer hiking nobility are also on the grounds in the forest.

    Interesting mill wheel arrangement. You have to think about buildings ...

    The Regensteinmühle is located about one kilometer west of the Regenstein castle ruins at the foot of the striking rock massif. It was probably built in the second half of the 12th century and was then owned by the Regenstein counts. Until about the middle of the 15th century, the building used as mill and oil mill was in operation, then began the slow decline of the Regenstein mill. The mill complex once included a two-kilometer long mill race, two water tunnels each about 20 meters long, and various residential and farm buildings. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the integration of the ruin complex of the Regensteinmühle into the defensive system of Regenstein Castle took place. By the Prussians, the remaining buildings of the mill were blown up in 1758. It was not until relatively late in the period from 1988 to 1991 that the excavation of the ruins of the Regensteinmühle and the beginning of a restoration began.
    The two water wheels with a diameter of about 4 or 5 meters in the picture are replicas, which were reconstructed from the finds of the original wheels. It is planned to restore the entire Regenstein mill as well.

    The Regensteinmühle is one of the most important stations on the Blankenburger Mühlenwanderweg.

    The mill wheels can be combined with a visit to the sandstone caves and Regenstein Castle.

    On the way to the mill from the parking lot on the B81 you walk along the mill ditch. A very, very nice way. And the destination is worth seeing. Here you will also find a stamp office of the HWN.

    In 2013 a Franco-German work promotion project started to restore the Regensteinmühle.
    The young people of the EPIDE organization from Belfort, France, work together with German young people in the VHS Bildungswerk Blankenburg.
    They renovated the large mill wheel of the lower oil mill, which has a diameter of 4.40 m.
    At the same time a documentation was created about the progress of the project and a model of the Regensteinmühle in 1:35 scale.
    Work was also carried out on the area around the mill, visual axes were cut freely, stairs, plaques, bridges and railings were renewed or renovated.
    In 2014 another Franco-German labor promotion project took place, the second mill wheel was restored, historical foundations exposed, information boards were set up and the old watercourse was renewed.
    As in 2013, the young people from Germany and France worked together as part of a funding project of the municipal employment agency (KoBa) and the VHS Bildungswerk and did a good job.

    This is not just the stamping point 82 of the Harz hiking pin.The Regenstein-Mühle is absolutely worth the trip, even if you don't intend to put a stamp in your hiking booklet.The Regenstein mill is located in the middle of a shady forest. There is also a possibility to rest at this point, from which you have a great view of the mill.The stamping points 80 (Regenstein castle ruins) and 81 (sand caves in the army) are also nearby.You can reach the Regenstein mill via a signposted path that leads from the parking lot below the Regenstein castle ruins into the forest. You can start the hike with the Burgriune Regenstein, then on to the Regenstein mill and at the end you have a look at the sand caves in the Heers.Then you have combined three really spectacular places in one hike.I am happy to recommend this place!best regards
    your Wandervogel Ani
