Travel Tuesday: The twin mills


In Greetsiel, you can find the twin mills. Both, are only a tourist attractions nowadays. You can find a café in one of the mills and a gift shop in the other one. It’s easy to find them, because there are huge parking grounds nearby.

A few years ago, one of the mills was swept from its base by a serious storm. Fortunately the mill was reconstructed. Donations were collected and use for the reconstruction by the preservation association.

The mills are located only about 2 or 3 minutes by foot from the picturesque old town of Greetsiel. I’m showing you some impressions from Greetsiel in one of my next posts.

Take care!
