Also Wind an sich mag ich ja eigentlich gar nicht, Windmühlen hingegen sehr. Deshalb habe ich den letzen Feiertag zu Fronleichnam auch zu einem kleinen Roadtrip ins schöne Weinviertel genutzt. Die Tour führte mich zur Retzer Windmühle - eine Fotolocation, die schon lange auf meiner To-Do-Liste steht.

Vor einiger Zeit wurde sie von Expterten aus den Niederlanden aufwendig restauriert. Seitdem ist die Retzer Windmühle eine der beiden letzten noch voll funktionsfähigen Windmühlen Österreichs.

Well, I don't really like wind itself, but windmills I do like a lot. That's why I took the opportunity of he last public holiday on Corpus Christi for a little road trip to the beautiful Weinviertel. The tour took me to the windmill of Retz - a photo location that has lbeen on my to-do list for quite some time.

 

Surrounded by vineyards, the Retz windmill towers high above the town and is already visible from afar (which is particularly helpful if, like me, you rely too much on the navigation system and the navigation system lets you down).

 

The Retz windmill was built in the 19th century by Johannes Tobias Bergmann and shut down in 1924. Some time ago it was restored by experts from the Netherlands. Since then, the windmill of Retz has been one of the last two fully functional windmills in Austria. There are also guided tours through the fully equipped windmill, which I did not do this time due to the corona restrictions.
