Historic water mill Birgel – Welcome to the mill experience center
The Eifel is one of the most extraordinary landscapes in Europe. In the heart of this landscape, in the Vulkaneifel, is the historic water mill. This place, lovingly cherished by head miller Erwin and his mill team, breathes the spirit of tradition, hospitality and satisfaction.
If you quit your job at the age of 48 and plan to only do a hobby for the next 50 years, then you speak of a healthy mind and happiness. “A healthy mind” will not tire you. “Luck” is another name for willpower.
“Glück zu” and wish you many happy hours here with us

Now new: Brewing beer with Erwin
Learn everything from A-Z you need to know about brewing beer
The brewing plant of the head miller Erwin is the latest addition to the historic mill site and was reconstructed by himself according to old conditions. Brewing beer involves manual labor during mashing and lautering, as there are no agitators or pumps. The most difficult part is maintaining the temperature in the wood-fired brewing kettle. Be a brewing assistant and let yourself be taken back to the good old days of the purity law.
