    Shortly before the crossing of the Ahauser Aa into the Dutch territory, barely 300 steps from the border, stands on its left bank over 390 years old historic watermill, after the old German hair - hilly forest landscape - called "Haarmühle" Here the Ahauser Aa dammed by two weirs, above it invites you to piers while it encloses a peninsula below.
    Since 1 April 1988, the old watermill from 1619 is back in operation. Through the renovation, we allow you entrance and guidance in one of the most beautiful working watermills in the Münsterland.
    In November 2002, the mill was given a new, predominantly made of galvanized steel and aerodynamically optimized wheel, which should ensure that the mill now also generates strong electrical energy.
    If you want to know more about the watermill. Under History you will learn more. A visit is possible at any time.
    Guided tour on request approx. 1/2 hour with bread tasting per person 2.50 €

    On the way back, try the snack at the hair mill. Homemade bread and homemade herb butter - awesome !!

    It was very nice to go on a bike tour because you can eat very well. Haarmühle is a great restaurant.

    Wonderful area. From here you can start great tours in the neighboring Netherlands. Or you take the hair mill as the end point, because the Westphalian cuisine is top here.
