The paddle wheels of the Mühlrath mill are driven by the Schwalm river. Today the visitor can dine deliciously in the building of the historic water mill.

Since the mill is located in the beautiful Schwalm area, it is popular with both hikers and cyclists who enjoy the region’s nature. By the way, it is the oldest watermill on the Lower Rhine and the mill wheels now drive an electricity generator.
