Windmills in Eastern Germany
 
This documentation tries to list all still available windmills in eastern Germany. It was created from 1992 to 1998. After an analysis of historical maps and literature, as well as countless excursions, still 704 windmills in all possible preservation statuses could be found and photographed. The pallet reaches from a heap of rubble, up to affectionate restored, still grinding systems. It shows varietys of windmill types in all modifications, the aesthetic charm even of a ruin and in addition, the problems of the monument protection of a not longer used technology.
