Frick-Mühle (Frick's Mill)

First mentioned in 1392, the mill on the Klemmbach river was originally a manor farm belonging to the Lords of Baden. In 1690 it was taken over by Bartlin Frick and remained in the possession of the Frick family until the mill was decommissioned in 1910.

At the end of the 18th century the property consisted of two sloping houses arranged together: the dwelling with mill-room and the servant's quarters with a pergola. Two mill wheels can be found on the right side of the building, past which the mill canal flowed.

Today the mill is an important relic of Müllheim's economic history, and was renovated and furnished by the town council and the Markgräfler Museum Association of Müllheim.

Next stop: retrace your steps back along the river, past the Old School and Former Slaughterhouse, keeping the river to your left. Back on Wilhelmstraße, turn right, and after a short walk the Deanery is on your left.

Alamanicus is wandering his old Alemanni haunts, revisiting the places where once he used to drink, carouse, and beat up the odd Roman legionnaire or two. Things have moved on since his day, and the old Alemanni country now lies across south west Germany, French Alsace, and northern Switzerland. Cut through by the mighty Rhine, it is an area of great beauty, and a lot has happened there since Alamanicus last walked this land.
