Tausendmühle – Grist Mill Museum

Address: Tausendmühle, 66892 Bruchmühlbach-Miesau

Surrounded by fields and meadows the Tausendmühle is located in the outskirts of Bruchmühlbach at the foot of the Elendsklamm. The first mill on this site was built in 1598, therefore Tausendmühle is looking back on over 400 years of milling tradition. Until a few years ago the mill was still in service, it was the only remaining functional grist mill in the Kaiserslautern region. Today the building houses a lovingly decorated mill store selling flour, cereals, muesli, organic food and pet food. Mill machinery and euquipment are dispayed and a small museum makes the milling process come alive for the visitors.  Furthermore workshops in baking bread and making chocolates are offered.
