Anyone who steps under the cogwheel and looks up will see charred beams and charred roof rafters. This happened during the great hurricane on November 13, 1972, and the people of Trebbus still remember it vividly today. No one left their houses if they did not need to. But the miller from the west end of the village reported smoke coming from the mill - the mill was on fire. The Trebbus fire service came out. They turned the mill away from the direction of the wind. But where to get water? The next ditch was almost 100 metres away.

They needed to connect up hoses, attach the nozzle and point it high up at the mill. It felt like an endless hour of struggle, during which the whole village was champing at the bit. At the end, the worst had been prevented.

Between 1967 and 1969, the people of Trebbus had invested over 4,000 hours of construction work in the new outer skin of the mill, which was faithful to the design built in 1881. Wheelwright Hüsing from the neighbouring village of Arenzhain spent a lot of time there – with wood only available in a roundabout way! The storm in 1972 had set the braked blades in motion, the brake shoe was rubbing hot on the wheel and ignited the fire. Once again, the people of Trebbus worked and repaired the damage, especially to the brake shoe and the teeth of the cogwheel.

There is now a flour stone, a grist mill stone and a millet stamper, which was used to pre-treat very hard grain. Inside the mill is a display with containers, products and tools from the everyday life of the mill.

The post mill, located to the south of the village, is the largest in the area and the second highest building in Trebbus - after the magnificent church.

Trebbus post mill can be visited from May to October if booked in advance.

It is a stop on the Kohle-Wind & Wasser-Tour (Coal, Wind & Water Tour).
