German windmills

Not all windmills cards come from the Netherlands, they can also come from northern Germany, in this case, from the states of Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein.
These wonderful cards were sent by Claus and Erika.

The Hinte mill is the only windmill in the Hinte municipality in the Aurich district (East Friesland). The building, erected in 1869, was restored between 1992 and 1997 and has since been equipped with functioning mill technology again.

The Mitling-Mark mill is not only one of the most scenic mills in East Friesland, but also a very special place to get married. 
The mill was rebuilt in 1843 after a fire.

Charlotte is an old and beautiful thatched smock mill in the beautiful landscape of Geltinger Noor. Built in 1826 for draining the backwater and grinding work purposes. Together with a second mill, Charlotte had to pump groundwater from the lowland fields into the Baltic Sea. Today, the mill is in private hands and supplies tourists with a comfy holiday-apartment.
