Ce 15 mai 2009, une délégation de l'initiative "Waasser op ons Millen", créée dans le but de revaloriser le moulin Muerbelsmillen (anct. "Moschterfabrik") à la rue Mohrfels (voir ci-dessous), a présenté son dossier de documentation et de conception à Monsieur le Bourgmestre et aux Échevins de la Ville. La Ville a acquis entretemps les différents lots et a promis de faire des travaux de conservation de l'objet avant d'entamer ultérieurement une étude plus poussée. Le dossier est disponible à l'adresse:

  1. Dear Ms. Seungeun,

    thank you for your interest in our district. It is always a pleasure to hear that people are eager to understand what is going on. So do not hesitate if you have a question. Unfortunately our blog-site is only in english due to the lack of time of the persons involved.

    So, the initiative "Water on our Mill" has been created last summer by some volunteers in order to rehabilitate the old mill situated next to the Hospice Civil at number 67 rue Mohrfels, not far away from the Youth Hostel. This mill goes probably back to the 10th century and worked until 1986. It is called also "Mustardmill", because in the 20th century mainly a production of the well-known luxembourgish mustard took place there. By the way, the last miller of our mill still lives in Bettembourg.

    The aim of the initiative was to produce towards the authorities a file containing a far-reaching documentation about the mill (or the sources where it can be found) and secondly, to propose a plan for the re-utilization of the 4 buildings forming part of that area. The concept is 1) to create housing for students in apprenticeship for a short while in Luxembourg (3-6 months) and 2) have a didactic/historical/ecological space for young people to understand how mills worked and newer technologies could be explained etc.
