Tranekær Slotsmølle

One of the island's many impressive old windmills, the 1834 Slotsmølle contains a little museum and has a simple cafe with coffee and cake for just 25kr.

It's 1.5km north of the castle, just off the main Rte 305, though it's easy to miss driving northbound due to the masking trees.
