Overview
More
Hellenurme Watermill makes you feel like you have gone back to the era of your predecessors. The machinery here mostly dates back to the 1930s and is still in working order. The miller opens the water gates and starts the mill when visitors arrive. You can watch the entire process of grains being made into flour, semolina, groats. The landlady then spoils you with some warm bran balls and drinks. People at the mill are firm followers of the folk calendar, so order a tour on the mill on the holiday or season that is the most exciting for you. Interesting facts: The mill was established by the Middendorff family in the 1880s.

You can not believe, but it is still working watermill in Estonia, already 134 and still making good quality fresh flour for different kind of grains. And it is making not only flour, but also electricity! Last year the very kind mill-lady Mae opened her...More

The water mill is the last watermill in Estonia still working. The owner got his grandfather's father's mill and renovated it. There is still work to do but the place is open for visitors - groups only. The basic package takes about 2 hours. It...More
