Majbølle Mill

Majbølle Mill sits in the landscape close to Guldborgsund, the waterway between Lolland and Falster. The mill has been carefully but thoroughly renovated so that events can now be held in the café, even with access to a handicap toilet. It's a heart-warming place where the past flourishes in the present.

Built in 1881 as a Dutch mill, Majbølle Mill is a striking symbol in the landscape and an important part of the area's cultural heritage.

Lolland was filled with swaying cornfields and offered a multitude of mills until sugar beet production slowly took over when Denmark sold the Caribbean islands to the USA in 1915 and access to sugar cane disappeared.

After extensive renovation, Majbølle Møllelaug reopened the mill in 1989. Today, the mill functions as a living museum, and the granary houses an exhibition and meeting room, while the anteroom features an exhibition of old field tools.

The restored mill stands as a living testament to Danish craftsmanship and is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. The mill wings, for example, are made from a large oak tree from the neighbouring Knuthenborg manor.

Today, Majbølle Møllelaug, an association, runs the mill's daily activities, including events such as Mill Day on the 3rd Sunday in June and the Christmas market.

Admission is free and the mill is typically open every Tuesday in July and early August, you can always find more information on the website.
