Photographer's Note

The Rhenish Open Air Museum at Kommern shows two windmills. While most of the windmills require that only their top including sails be turned to fit the wind, with the mill house being stationary, in this case of a post mill the entire wooden building will have to be turned. It is the oldest type of windmill, inside Europe in use since 12th century.
