Molen de Sterrenberg - Nijeveen
The roots of windmill De Sterrenberg are in the German town of Weener. The octagonal scaffold corn mill was built there in 1786, but in 1977 it moved in parts to Nijeveen, where it was built brick by brick as the successor to a lost mill on the current Molenweg. The mill bears the name of its last owner in Germany, Mr Sterrenberg. On 11 August 1977, H.R.H. Prince Claus officially put the mill, now owned by the municipality of Meppel, into operation. Unique to the Netherlands at De Sterrenberg is the self-crossing: the wind rose on the back of the cap transmits the cross movement without the intervention of the miller. This way, the hood always puts itself on the wind!
