Cologne Off The Beaten Path: 64 reviews and 102 photos
Bottmuhle was built in 1587 to be a grape mill, but it produced wine quality which locals called "suure hungk" (sour dog). I guess such a wine provocated heavy headache to the consumers and it made somebody to close it down and use it more practically as the platform in the defence system of the city walls. The city walls, however, has been destroyed in the 19th century and Bottmuhle aswell.
The tower was privately rebuilt and thus closed to the public.
