From Hilzinger Mill to Uhurock

The mills in the Black Forest are powered by water flowing from the mountains down to the valley. In flat regions like Holland, there are windmills that are powered by the wind. Even today, in the Black Forest, there are still mills that grind wheat into flour using water power. But how is wheat turned into flour? Write the answer in the comments below and send it to me. Then I can tell Anna and her brother, who have already asked me about it.

Answer: To turn wheat into flour, the wheat grains are first cleaned to remove any impurities or foreign particles. Then, the wheat is ground into flour through a process called milling. The milling process involves crushing the grains between two large stones or metal rollers to break them apart and create a fine powder. The resulting flour is then sifted to separate any remaining coarse particles, leaving behind the smooth and fine wheat flour that we commonly use for baking and cooking.

Die Hilzinger Mill

The Hilzinger Mill in Glottertal was built in 1621 and is likely one of the oldest in the Emmendingen district. And it still operates today. Klaus Ruf is a trained miller and lives with his wife near the mill. On special days, he puts the mill into operation and grinds the grain just as it was done hundreds of years ago.

Address of the Mill:
Talstr. 151a
(Straße zum Wuspenhof)
79286 Glottertal
