Neumann Mill

Short facts

Historic mill and technical monument

The Neumann mill, located at the mouth of the Großer Zschand, is the only one of the mills in the Kirnitzsch valley that still has approximately its original shape. It is said to have stood here as a cutting mill as early as the 14th century. Since 1791 it has been owned by the Neumann family.
The still preserved wooden grinding mill dates back to 1870. The undershot mill wheel has a diameter of 4.60 m (water power 15-18 hp). Until about 1955, the sawmill was used for the production of timber and firewood.
Since 1997, the plant has again been open to visitors to the Kirnitzschtal valley as a technical monument. The production of groundwood pulp, a basic material for paper production, is shown.
