Of the former seven windmills, two are still preserved in the town area: The so-called Stadtmühle and the Achtkant. Both are owned by the island town of Malchow, which is committed to preserving the monuments that characterize the townscape.
After the completion of the restoration works, which had begun in 1995, the town mill, which belongs to the gallery Dutchman type and has a rotating cap, has fully functional wings again.
Inside the mill, three floors are freely accessible to the visitor. In the entrance hall, in addition to numerous pieces of equipment, a small photo exhibition offers insights into the history of the monument. One floor up, the collection entitled "Shamans - Idols - Legends - Prehistoric and Early Historical Traces in the Malchow Area" is open to anyone interested. There, guests can visit the oldest Malchow burial ground, which was discovered by archaeologists during excavation work.
The third floor shows once again pieces of the mill equipment.
If the weather permits and one of the volunteers is present, there is the possibility to visit the surrounding gallery.
