The Hude Watermill
After the renovation of the monastery’s mill by the Estate’s administration, this amazing site in Hude found itself looking for a new tenant who might help to preserve its unique heritage. After several offers, the municipality of Hude was selected as caretaker for the mill.

Today, one can relax in the shade of a birch tree to the sound of a babbling brook, far away from everyday hustle-and-bustle. Many couples tie the knot here every year. The mill provides an excellent ambience and the possibility for a wide variety of special celebrations and music events.

A cultural oasis, this site is enriched by an array of diverse opportunities for special celebrations and events in what is truly a pearl in the heart of Hude.
