Grenszicht


Close to the German border in Emmer-Compascuum lies the mill Grenszicht. In contrast to most of Drenthe’s other mills that are predominantly active in summer, this mill is also active in winter. The mill is especially active in November and December each year. Four special grain mixes are made and milled in the mill for spekdikken (a type of small local pancake with bacon), kniepertjes (a thin, sweet waffle that is traditionally eaten in winter months) and pancakes. Unsurprisingly, these are two busy months for the mill, with a lot of flour being packaged and sold in the mill shop.

Close to the German border in Emmer-Compascuum lies the mill Grenszicht. In contrast to most of Drenthe’s other mills that are predominantly active in summer, this mill is also active in winter.

A mill museum has been housed in this mill since 2002. It’s a small museum, but worth visiting. Visitors not only get to see the mill, but are also given an impression of the area. The mill opens by appointment. Behind the mill is a miniature campsite called De Molenhof, where you can camp with a view of the mighty mill.
