A company outing to the Eifel takes you to the mill in Birgel if you want to have fun, motivation and satisfaction. We will implement our ideas for your company outing together with you and leave nothing to be desired. The company outing to the Eifel is supposed to be a complete success for those who organize it, for whom one is showered with compliments on the return trip home.

The ideas range from tours through the mill premises to activities in the mill bakery , making bread and mustard yourself in the mustard mill or distilling schnapps in the distillery.

Our Mill Olympiad contributes to real team building through physical and mental games.

The entire mill team ensures good food and drink all day.

Company outings in connection with conferences or seminars are not only suitable for day trips. Due to the possibility of staying overnight in the conference hotel , multi-day tours can also be carried out here.

Mill action program for adults

The idea arose from the hobbies of the miller Erwin to create mill action programs for groups of up to 90 people in order to be transported back to a world 100 years ago and to manufacture his own products by hand in the mills.

The group games can be held either as entertainment or as competitive games.

The following exciting and entertaining programs are available:

1. Grain mill

Each participant grinds their grain, hammers their oatmeal and mixes their breakfast cereal with other ingredients

2. Mustard mill

Here you put together your individual mustard according to your own taste.

3. Bakehouse

In the bakery, whole-grain wheat and natural rye sourdough are kneaded into bread in normal or fantasy shapes and baked in a wood-fired oven to make a tasty bread.

4. Sawmill

In order to imitate the function of the old horizontal gates, we saw a slice of wood with a drum saw and put the mill’s company logo on it.

The branding iron with the logo is still heated in an old field blacksmith’s shop.

5. Oil mill

Here you learn to press your own oil on handcrafted oil presses. When the first drops run into the glass, hearts beat faster and the joy is great.

6. Distillery

In Erwin’s favorite workshop, there is no firing on such days, but the finished products are tasted and the function of the firing process is explained in detail.

Price for the mill tour + 1 program: 22,00 € per person
Each additional program: 11,00 € per person
Price for complete program: 66,00 € per person

Prices are valid from 15 persons

Evening programs with entertainment, home-style cooking or gourmet cuisine then round off the company outing to the Eifel.
