Provincie Limburg Things to Do: 46 reviews and 71 photos
In Gronsveld, just south of Maastricht, there is one of the only four towermills left in our country. This mill was built in 1618-1623 for the lord of Gronsveld, Joest Maximillian van Bronckhorst. In 1766 they added 3 meter to the tower, this can be seen clearly because this 3 meters are more narrow.
The mill was used for the villages of Gronsveld, Heugem, Cadier and Keer. All belonging to the lands of van Bronckhorst. In the tower are four grooves through which the miller could see the roads from these 4 villages, all on about equal distance from the mill.
The mill is open to the public on the first and third saturday of the month.
Address: Rijksweg 90, Gronsveld
