In between the old mill and the old town hall, a good spot to take photos. I had not heard of hewelius before but the mural and info board were interesting.

Dedicated to Johannes. A statue, a mural and a three ring object which is actually a time measuring instrument. He was also well known for beer making although none around sadly!
