The mill quarter (how the Mühlviertel region in Upper Austria is literally translated) is also traditionally known for its mills. Many waters flow down from the mountains into the river Danube, the southern border of this region. In the woods along hiking trails you still find quite often water wheels like this.

    Love the wonderful colors in this excellent capture, Patrick! It reminds me of my childhood, playing in the forest, can almost smell it! But never saw a water wheel in the Spessart. This is a very unique capture! Congratulations to you!*

  • Thank you Christiane. The region where I live is literally translated into ‘Mill quarter’. One might guess where the name comes from ;)
