Activities

Our visitors are invited to explore the almost untouched woods and moors in the area, visit the bird sanctuary by Lake Steinhude (Steinhuder Meer), meditate or attend concerts at the Cistercian Abbey in Loccum or take a boat out onto the Steinhuder Meer. Active guests can go horse-riding, (mini-)golfing, sailing, kite-surfing, ballooning or visit an adventure park or a dinosaur park. [ more ]

Windmill history

The windmill was built in 1871 and, until it was struck by lightning in 1947, used as a working grain mill. In 1957 it was bought by our grandparents and rebuilt as a family home, while retaining its sails and fantail. It was restored again in 2012-14 to be used as a holiday home. We are saving up for new sails and a fan tail: every visitor is contributing to this goal! [ more ]
