Reutlinger Sägemühle "Sawmill" on Saturday, August 13, 2011

Dear members and friends,

We would like to invite you to join us for a very unique and interesting visit to a water wheel driven sawmill from the year 1726. This quaint historical jewel is not a major tourist attraction but is being opened specially for us by the last of the family owners Herr Wegst. Much of the mechanics are original and we get to see it all up close. After the big city fire in Reutlingen this mill was built to saw lumber for the rebuilding of the city, hard to imagine as small as it is, and helped supply lumber for the rebuilding after the bombings in 1945.

We will meet at the

Reutlinger Sägemühle "Sawmill"

Lederstr. 80, 72764 Reutlingen

The Sawmill is directly across the parking area of the restaurant "Alte Mühle", now closed, where we went for the Bosch Symphony Orchestra concert events.
