The museum is closed between noon and 2, so we could not visit as we yet had to visit all of Hammalburg's highlights. The former building of the men mill was built in the middle ages. As the justices administered the corn mill of the Hammelburger citizens it was called "Herrenmühle". As today, is a decorative Baroque building from around 1700. Since 1991 it houses on three floors (850 m2 ) a permanent exhibition titled "Bread and wine". On the ground floor the 1200-year history of viniculture in Hammelburg, the proven oldest town in Swiss Franconia. A natural looking, reconstructed, vineyard with paraphernalia illustrates the laborious work of hackers. The wine cellar shows the enology (winemaking technical science) and adjacent areas, such as barrel making and distillery. On the two upper floors "Bread". How bread is created: operation of grain from sowing to harvest to delivery at the mill, former threshing methods. In the next rooms “mill history in the Saale valley” and "living and working in the mill". The last section of the Museum the topic "Bread and wine in religion and tradition", with 1720 precious chalice (Goldsmith François Hornung). Outside the museum, near the Franconian Saale, one can enjoy the panorama of Altstadt monastery and Castle Saaleck.
