Milling time at the show mill



Discover how grain becomes white and wholemeal flour

Grain has been ground in the Dittligmühle since the middle of the 19th century. The original mill with water wheel and millstone has developed into a modern production facility in recent years. The latest technologies meet old craftsmanship here and can be visited in Switzerland's first foam mill.

Visit the mill individually. A 10-minute film explains how flour is made from grain. Exciting information boards await you on the signalised tour through the visitor corridor of the mill. You can also follow the processes shown to you in the film live. How about a bite to eat in the antique bistro? The charming bistro is located directly in the old grinding mill of the mill. Relax in the old mill or on the sun terrace while enjoying selected products from the Gantrisch Nature Park.
