Hellenurme Watermill makes you feel like you have gone back to the era of your predecessors. The machinery here mostly dates back to the 1930s and is still in working order. The miller opens the water gates and starts the mill when visitors arrive. You can watch the entire process of grains being made into flour, semolina, groats. The landlady then spoils you with some warm bran balls and drinks. People at the mill are firm followers of the folk calendar, so order a tour on the mill on the holiday or season that is the most exciting for you.
Interesting facts: The mill was established by the Middendorff family in the 1880s.
