Wilhelm Busch Mill

Short facts

  • Ebergötzen

Wilhelm Busch spent the best time of his life in the historic "Herrenmühle".

At the age of 9, Wilhelm Busch was left to the Ebergötzer pastor for further education. He spent his youth in the village with the miller's son, Erich Bachmann, who was the same age. The childhood friendship turned into a lifelong relationship.

From the old childhood memories grew a story in seven pranks: "Max and Moritz", probably the most translated children's book in the world. And in the mill it not only looks like “Max and Moritz”, but grain is also crushed and ground into flour like in the old days. The heavy mill wheel drives the gear train, as it has done for centuries.

From the shared childhood memories grew a story in seven pranks: "Max and Moritz", probably the most translated children's book in the world. And in the mill it not only looks like "Max and Moritz". “The bed wobbled from the gears of the mill wheels and the falling water rushed through my dreams”, that's how Wilhelm Busch described his nights in the mill.

Today the Wilhelm-Busch-Mühle is a memorial with a mill museum and presents a piece of history about the life and work of Wilhelm Busch as well as an ancient mill-grinding system.
Individually designed tours for all age groups are an unforgettable experience.  Let yourself be inspired by the simplicity of technology from the past and experience the rumble of the mill for yourself. In some rooms you can still guess the scenes of the cozy gentlemen's evenings.
