About the Mühlerama

Our museum is actually a mill.
The Tiefenbrunnen industrial mill, which is over 100 years old, is the oldest mill in the Zurich area that is still in operation. Flour is produced here almost every day.
But the mill is also a museum.
In the permanent exhibition on three floors, an impressive machinery of wheels, hoppers, vibrators, running belts and wooden pipes tells of the complex path from grain to bread and the ancient craft of milling. Our special exhibitions are also always about food; the food of the past, present and future, food production, enjoyment but also health and ecology.
The museum's offer is complemented by a wide range of workshops and guided tours for children and adults. The baking school, guided tours of the historic mill and the special exhibitions are particularly popular.
