Danish Windmill Day - Skjern Windmühle

On the occasion of Danish Windmill Day, mills across the country open their doors to give visitors the opportunity to learn more about Denmark's rich history and traditions in water and wind turbines.

In Skjern, Skjern Windmill stands as an impressive monument to the technological developments of the 18th and 19th centuries. The windmill was built in 1872 according to Dutch regulations, where only the top of the windmill is turned by the wind. Skjern Windmill now stands on Marupvej, where it has been for more than 100 years, but it has actually been moved twice before that as Skjern town was founded and grew.

Local volunteers will be on hand to explain all this and much more at Mill Day - and if the wind is willing, they will also demonstrate how the mill can grind grain.
