The mission of the mill explorers:

Mills were very common in the Ries, a granary of Bavaria. Rapid technical development has not spared this cultural asset either. Only a few of the almost 200 mills are still active. That's why 2019 has happened homeland friends under the direction of Dr. Josef Hopfenzitz came together to collect as much information as possible about the Rieser mills, existing and gone.

The result is contained in the mill directory.
