This reconstructed 18th-century Dutch-style windmill contains exhibits about the history of the mill and mill technology, and offers a close-up of the grinding mechanism and a top-floor viewing platform.

According to legend, Frederick the Great ordered its owner to demolish the original mill because of the noise. However, when the miller refused and threatened to go to court, the king acquiesced.
