... studying the installations in the mill's transformer house. The transformer is shut down because the mill is not operating. Therefore no risk.

... studying Johannes Juul's patented low-voltage stove (1936). The stove was donated by Andel Elmuseum 12 September 2023 to Juuls Museum in relation to the planned restart of the Gedser Wind Turbine. And in time to be introduced to the Alte Stromer three days later.

Mail and photos from Claudia and Joachim Jähne:
"Thank you for your effort during our visit to Gedser on 15.09.23. It was very nice to see how you put a lot of effort into building up your museum and how you welcome visitors with a lot of warmth. Thank you again for everything and good luck with the museum. Here are a few photos from our visit.
Claudia and Joachim "

There is free access all year round, day and night to the wind sculptures (constructed from recycled materials, supplied by local citizens). The wind sculptures are a tribute to the Gedser Wind Turbine and the many possibilities of wind power. Herbs, wild flowers and berry bushes are planted among the wind sculptures. The plants are supplied by locals and visitors are welcome to harvest seeds, berries and take cuttings.

Finally, a heartfelt thank to each and every Alte Stromer for a lovely day and your support to the association's project.
