The history of the Aselager Mühle


In 1809 a grain windmill was built in Aselage at a cost of 2,500 Reichstaler.

Around1860 the Aselager Mühle was demolished and sold.

At the current location in 1860 a builder built an earthed Dutch capped windmill.

This mill was used by the landlord in Aselage himself until the middle of the 20th century and was taken care of by a miller's boy.

At the end of the 19th century, the listed building, located in front of, or opposite the main entrance to the hotel, was built for residential and other purposes.

In November 1941, a hurricane damaged the windmill so badly that it had to be shut down. The sails sold, the mill building falls into ruins.

Between 1976 and 1980, the mill was completely renovated with the financial support of the Herzlake municipality and since then has been used as a wedding venue by bridal couples from all over Germany who want to celebrate their wedding a very special and unforgettable place.
