Experience Skjern Windmill driving

This summer, Skjern Windmill offers a unique experience for the whole family. Every Monday during the school summer holidays, you can experience the impressive windmill in action as the large blades turn in the wind and the mills grind flour. Volunteer millers from Ringkøbing Fjord Museums are ready to tell you about the history of wind power and the technology behind the windmill

Skjern Windmill has stood proudly in the landscape of West Jutland for more than 100 years and has been in three different locations. The careful restoration has preserved the historic character and authentic details of the turbine from a time when wind power really became an important energy source. Every Monday during the school summer holidays you can also experience the impressive windmill in action as the large blades turn in the wind and the mills grind flour.

Every Sunday, volunteer artists also display their work in the old granary. This gives visitors an extra dimension of local culture and creativity while enjoying the historic atmosphere of the mill.

Opening hours for Skjern Windmill 2024:
1 July - 5 August
Mondays 11-15 - The mill is running
Sundays 13-17 - Artists showcase their artworks
