Tour Lolland-Falster's Historic Windmills

In connection with a meeting in Sakskøbing on 10 January 2024 about Cultural Tourism - contact was established between the association and Holger Villadsen, who is chairman of the Kappel Post Mill Guild.
Subsequently, the association has received links and other material for use on This, to inform tourists about "the preserved 16-18 post mills in Denmark, of which 5 are located in Lolland-Falster, including perhaps the country's oldest. And they are all operational".

Holger Villadsen also points out: "The post mill is actually an even older "mother mill" - especially if you can see and understand that the central post in a post mill corresponds to the modern towers of concrete or steel."

Kappel Post Mill is considered to have been built approx. 1730, but it may be older. It was rebuilt in 1844.
Most recently it was restored in the 1980s and in 2004, so that it can now grind flour. The board covering is painted Swedish red, and the mill has a thatched roof.
The mill was in operation until 1935 and became a listed building in 1959. Since 2003, it has been owned by the independent association the Kappel Post Mill Guild.

Address: Kappelvej 4, Kappel, 4900 Nakskov.
Access: During the summer holidays, the mill is open every Tuesday, 14:00-17:00. In addition, the mill is open on the Annual Mill Day (Sunday 16 June 2024) and by prior arrangement. Free access.

Gedesby Mill Guild was founded in 1985 and is responsible for the restoration and ongoing maintenance of the mill. The mill can run and grind flour.

Address: Kobbelsøvej 1, Gedesby, 4874 Gedser.

Stouby Mill is the only historic post mill in operation subject to weather conditions.
The old mill burned in 1768. The present mill was transferred to Væggerløse as a replacement and rebuilt in approx. 1790.
In 1950 Stouby Mill was registered as unique because it is the only post mill in Denmark where 3 grounding mills run a star wheel. In 1998, the mill was protected as cultural heritage.
The mill's special environmental and cultural historical values make it an inalienable element in the open country at Væggerløse. Operation is handled by the Stouby Mill Guild.

Address: Stoubyvej 19A, 4873 Væggerløse.
Access: In the summer of 2024, the mill will be open every day from 10:00 a.m. to 16:00.
On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, the wings will run if the weather permits. When the mill is running, the visitor center is open and coffee and cake are served and it is possible to purchase beer, water, wine, pottery, honey, ice cream, etc.
