Bohemian Mill (Czech: Český Mlýn) was a former watermill, which was later used as a guest house, located directly on the Saxon-Bohemian border near Rittersgrün on the territory of Goldenhöhe in today's Czech Republic.The water mill located at this point was first mentioned in connection with the invasion of General Heinrich von Holk in 1632 by Christian Lehmann. Later, the mill was also a cutting edge as a sawmill. In 1873, sawmill operations came to a standstill due to high export duties on sawn timber to Saxony. Similarly high were the tariffs for the sale of flour and bread to Saxony.On May 11, 1881, a major fire destroyed the built in Egerland style four-sided courtyard of the mill plant. The wife of the mill owner Moritz Beer and his three children were rescued by the fire department from the flames. There was a property damage of 30,000 guilders.After the rebuilding of the building in the massive style only land and restaurant was operated. A room was constantly rented to the Bohemian customs, because immediately before the house the road over the Rittersgrüner pass led to Sankt Joachimsthal.The owner Moritz Beer built 1898 directly on the Saxon side across the street a new wood cutting.On November 28, 1938, there was again a fire of the building in the attic, which could be extinguished in time.1944/45 were outsourced from Berlin in the Bohemian mill under the name "AG Pappe" a cardboard factory from Berlin.In 1946, the mill owners moved into their wood cutting plant on Saxon territory. 1949 began with the demolition of the Bohemian mill, of which there are no more remains today.(Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/B%C3%B6hmische_M %C)
