Museums

From magnificent floors to fine walking stick knobs, works of art made of stone and precious stones were produced for the ducal court in the Schwerin Grinding Mill. The mill is located on the edge of the stately palace grounds and is in working order and used as a museum. Visitors can learn about stone cutting and stone grinding and get to the bottom of the living conditions of the day laborers and grinding millers. The museum is open all year round.

Exhibition - From stone to castle

The exhibition in the grinding mill tells about the origin of the place as a part of the residence ensemble and about the everyday life of the stone grinders. For more than three hundred years, the wheel of the water mill at the outlet of the Lazy Lake has been turning. From 1749 to 1857, skilled hands cut, polished and polished stones for the princes of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, producing decorative stone slabs, sarcophagi, monument pedestals and fireplace surrounds from granite boulders weighing several tons. For the most part, small decorative objects were created by hand from precious stones and local minerals.

Today, the historic water mill with undershot water wheel is a museum with a functioning demonstration plant for the processing of large natural stones.
