We viewed this (non-functioning) water wheel after breakfast in the restaurant where we had the end result of the spelt milling processing in the form of croissants. It's behind the mill which is next door to the bakery/restaurant. It's a nice, scenic photo-stop. Don't forget to check out the fruit tarts and delicious tarts. The restaurant service was delightful.

We were walking around town and came upon this old water wheel and what appears to be an old factory. Its not in use now but shows how things used to be done. Nice for a quick stop.

Just enter the door besides the shop and you can visit a working water wheel. Which is used to produce spelt flour. Slow milled .

This beautiful old mill still has its big water-operated wheel in the backyard for you to visit.You can also see the mill itself. In the building next to it, a bakery with a cafe offers delicious pies and bread

To put it simply, the pies alone steal the show with their sheer sizes and golden crusted magnificence! Once you get hold of a slice you can't help but admire its perfection before making your mind up about finally taking a bite. P.s. There's even a functional mill! P.p.s. Outbeats all other local bakeries!

I thought that would be just a bakery. In fact, not only it was a very good one, but also it was like a reall old bakery which they let you see the watermill and its machines. Sitting there and eating delicious pie while watching the watermill was a pleasant experience.

We were recommended to try this coffee shop as part of our walking tour of Masstricht (English instructions and route from Tourist Info ). We had to divert off the printed route to find it - but what a treasure. It is an actual working mill (waterpower rather than windpower) with a bakery, museum, shop and coffee shop attached. We...

A really nice place to visit in Maastricht. Make it a part of a walk through the older part of Maasttricht. The sound of sparkling water and the turning of the wheel is really nice.

A bit hard to find and an attraction which does'nt consume a lot of time, but certainly worth a visit. See the baking proces of their freshly baked bread and pies and enjoy the romantic view of the water mill. Don't forget to buy a Limburgse vlaai! We chose the pie stuffed with all sorts of red fruits. Delicious!
