13th/14th century

13th/14th century

An old record notes that the lord of Ringgenberg spent more time at the mill down by the lake, i.e. with the beautiful miller's daughter, than up at his castle. From this one could conclude that there already was a mill there in the 13th or 14th century. It is, however, difficult to specify an exact construction date for such a building.
