    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 ...

    This is not just the stamp 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 an opportunity 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.

    The Regenstein mill can be reached via a signposted path that leads from the parking lot below the Regenstein castle ruins into the forest. So 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 to others!

    best regards
    your Wandervogel Ani

    A beautiful place. There is also a rest area in front of the highlight. From there you have a great view of the Regensteinmühle.

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

    The Regensteinmühle surprised us very much because you wouldn't expect it in the middle of the forest with the imposing mill wheels. The complex has been impressively reconstructed and is worth a visit even if there weren't any stamps here. From here you can take beautiful historical paths: the ravine to the east and the Mühlgraben to the west. Both belong to the mill and are definitely worth seeing.

    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. The building used as a grinding and oil mill was in operation until around the middle of the 15th century, after which the rain stone mill began to slowly deteriorate. The mill complex once included a two-kilometer-long mill ditch, two water tunnels each about 20 meters long, and various residential and farm buildings. In the 17th and 18th centuries the ruins of the Regensteinmühle were integrated into the defense system of Regenstein Castle. The remaining structures of the mill were blown up by the Prussians in 1758. It was only relatively late in the period from 1988 to 1991 that the uncovering of the ruins of the Regensteinmühle and the beginning of a restoration began.

    The Harz stamp hunters will find a temple box here

    Great reconstruction of the mill, which was originally built here in the 12th century. Ideal for a picnic.

    The Regensteinmühle was a water-powered grinding and oil mill below the Regenstein castle. Stamp No. 82 of the HWN is located directly on the mill. You will also find a small hut here as well as a table and benches for resting.

    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 refurbished.
    In 2014, another Franco-German labor promotion project took place, the second mill wheel was restored, historical foundations were 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.
