Surrounded by meadows and woods the Watermill is located at the edge of the town of Hanshagen near Greifswald. It was established as a flour mill in 1524, continued being a paper mill from 1750 and changed back into a flour mill around 1850. It is regarded as the only German paper mill north of Berlin and the last Western Pomeranian Watermill. Besides the flour mill the millers also run a restaurant and a dance hall. From 2010 to 2012 this historical concept was revived with the successful renovation of the Watermill and with a lot of attention to detail. (Picture 1)

The restaurant ‘Zur Wassermühle’ as well as 6 hotel rooms furnished in country style is situated in the residential building.
