Around the Grinder

From the south side of the mill you have a view on the Old Rhine (200 meters) where boats pass by. The rural driveway(200 meters) to the mill ends at the gated parking with room for several cars adjacent to a heated garage, carport and shed for all garden supplies. There are several terraces. In summer it is nice to sit outside. There is sunshine everywhere.
