Ship mill Mureck

Ship mills characterized the shore landscapes of the great rivers for centuries. The Mureck Ship Mill, anchored in the Mura River, is one of the last floating ship mills in Central Europe. In the middle of an untouched floodplain landscape, you can enjoy typical Styrian cuisine with products from the Murmüller farmers in addition to a visit to the ship mill.

Supported by the river Mur

The mills were built on the principle of a houseboat. The entire mill and grinding technology was located on the floating platform - including the drive, the so-called shaft wheel. Over time, more and more of the ship mills disappeared. In 1997, the ship mill in Mureck was rebuilt according to the original model and is thus the only floating, as well as functioning mill - in traditional construction - in the whole of Central Europe. The mill had to be feared several times. In recent years it has sunk several times after heavy storms, but it has always been recovered. It cannot be washed away because it is anchored in the Mura River by steel cables. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
