on the Flensburg Firth


in Westerholz

This mill was built in Westerholz in 1855. It is one of the largest smock mills today. It was used as a sawmill for the kilns of the neighbouring brickworks. That’s how it got the name Steinadler. The mill is known well beyond Schleswig-Holstein’s borders. The ZDF television series “Der Landarzt” used the windmill and the picturesque surroundings as a filming location for many scenes.

The Steinadler is the largest mill in Schleswig-Holstein today and has an adjoining hotel. The mill’s Restaurant Steinadler serves meals in a large hall that seats over 140 guests. The mill itself is not open to the public, but the restaurant is worth the trip.
