Welcome to
Højer Mill

A vibrant cultural environment
on the edge of the marsh

Winter Closed

The gateway to
Tønder Marsh

Højer Mill is both a museum and a well-preserved cultural-historical environment where milling and grain trading took place from 1857 to 1972.

Find out about the history and workings of the mill and learn about life in Tønder Marsh in the exhibitions in the two grain stores, ‘Store Spiker’ and ‘Lille Spiker’.

In the mill house, you will find the museum’s shop and café selling local specialities and local crafts.

Rambling trails and paths from Højer Mill lead you to scenic nature experiences. Your visit to Tønder Marsh and the Wadden Sea National Park starts here.


At the moment there are no parking area at the mill.

There are parking spaces for coaches in Margrethevej to the west of the mill.

Food and drink

Visitors can bring their own lunch and eat it in the museum grounds.

The interior of Højer Windmill has remained practically intact, with the original equipment and furnishings including the steep staircase linking the six floors, which renders the mill difficult to access for guests with reduced mobility.

There is no outside ramp for wheelchair users.


The outdoor grounds of the museum are accessible with a pram.

Unfortunately, we cannot yet offer baby changing facilities.


Dogs are not allowed inside the museum, but are welcome in the grounds if kept on a leash.

Please remember to pick up after your dog.
