The post mill in Eldena was built in the first half of the 18th century. In 1930 the factory stopped. The post mill decayed rapidly over the following decades and in 1972 finally collapsed. Thanks to the efforts of the Förderverein Eldenaer Mühle e.V., the inauguration of a replica of the mill could be celebrated in the year 2002. Visits can be arranged by telephone.
Every year on Whit Monday is the German mill day. On this day, the historic mills open its doors.
