From grain to bread: at Mühlerama, kids become master millers!
Children can get a glimpse of the past and dive into the process of turning grain into bread in the working original mill, dating back to 1913, where flour is still milled every day at 3.00pm. They can take the flour they mill themselves home with them at the end and – great news for us parents! – use it to bake their own bread. Mühlerama has plenty of child-friendly events, workshops and courses on offer. It’s a great place to throw a kids’ birthday party, too.
The talking building
The audio guided tour lasts around one hour and is a great way to explore the Tiefenbrunnen industrial mill, which is over one hundred years old. Armed with a flour brush, kids can explore the entire museum. In the audio guide, the ‘talking building’ tells all kinds of stories about the Tiefenbrunnen mill.
The detective trail is full of secrets and offers another exciting way to explore the building. Armed with a big bunch of keys, the kids get closer to uncovering the mystery of the missing flour with every step, and find out lots of interesting and useful information about food production, nutrition and health along the way. At various stages in their journey, they must solve tricky little tasks to help crack the code to a secret hiding place at the end and find the answer to an unsolved murder case!
