The Gymnicher Mühle is an old water mill on the river Erft. It is mentioned for the first time in documents in 1315, but is probably considerably older. Today Gymnicher Mühle is a nature reserve centre and popular excursion destination.
An exciting nature experience programme awaits school classes, children's nurseries and groups of adults. The special features of the river Erft and the history of the mill are presented in the Erftmuseum and in the exhibition from corn to bread. The water amusement park covering 1.5 hectares with various play areas is a special experience not only for young visitors.
As well as regional dishes, the restaurant offers flair and hospitality from the Rhine. The view from the terrace to the herb garden is worth seeing. Birds of prey can be admired in the falconry, whilst hikers and cyclists can discover the Erftaue that is close by on several signposted routes.
