THE UNIQUE STORY, AS TOLD BY THE HOMEOWNER
The Farver Mill - a magical place with feel-good character
Anyone driving past Wangels will see it at first glance. The Farver Mill has been enthroned in the middle of the field for almost 200 years. "Everyone who drives by here sees it, but hardly anyone thinks that they could spend the night in the mill," says Karin Kügler.
"Many guests are looking for an unusual vacation experience and are happy to spend their vacation in such a special place." Guests use a hand-forged key to enter the interior of the unique vacation home and are fascinated at first sight by the historic mill technology that has been preserved over all these years. It almost seems as if time stands still in this magical place. Especially when it gets cold outside and the first autumn storms start to roll in, the mill conveys a feeling of warmth and security.
"Everyone feels welcome here from the very first moment," Karin Kügler knows. She converted the mill into a habitable gem in the 1970s with great personal commitment. In the process, the historic mill technology, including the wing cross, the grinder and the gear wheels, was preserved. Today, the thatched mill is listed as a relic of the traditional East Holstein manor culture and enjoys great popularity throughout the area.
The historic building is also a popular location for photographers. With a blooming rapeseed field or a glowing starry sky in the background, the mill is a frequent motif on calendars and postcards. "Once, our mill was even the filming location for an episode of Tatort a popular German detective TV series," Karin Kügler recounts enthusiastically. "The filming lasted a total of three days and for us it was a special experience to be able to be there up close."
Over the years, the mill has become a member of the family for Karin Kügler and Gerd Hammerich: "Standing at the top of the hill under the mighty thatched roof, you get the feeling that the mill is embracing you and protecting its inhabitants," says Karin Kügler. For her and her family, the mill is a special place where everyone always comes together, whether during the week or on special occasions like Christmas. The Farver Mill is a dream come true for the couple, who live 15 kilometers away on manor Panker, where they run a store for high-quality furniture and home accessories. Gerd Hammerich still puts a lot of time and manpower into maintaining the "old lady." "Our goal is to spend more relaxing time in our mill ourselves, but - don't worry," he grins, "we will continue offering it to vacationers. After all, we are hosts by vacation!"
