About
The windmill was opened to visitors on May 17th 1980. The predecessor of a windmill is a quern, which was first turned manually, then with the power of water and later also wind. Small farm windmills of Western Estonia and the islands are rather unique nature in the rural architecture; similar features can be noted in Scandinavia and Western Finland.Good to know:Although the windmills have lost their economic importance by today, the Eemu trestle windmill has remained the acknowledged symbol in Saaremaa, enriching the landscape and witnessing the tough work, done by our ancestors.

Working windmill right of the high way

We stopped by the windmill on the way to Saaremera. It was great to see the old mill in working condition.We got lucky with the wind and were able to see the mechanism in action.

This windmill is found near the Koguva fishing village. this village is built completely in traditional style and received the status as museum village (although all the houses are inhabited). On the edge of the village is one farm turned into a real museum that can be visited. the windmill can be found close to the sea and the port of Koguva. Best is to visit the windmill, the port (really nice view) and the village together in a short stroll.
