Trahter Veski, Kuressaare

#4 of 7 in Historic Sites in Saaremaa
Historic Site Tourist Spot
The windmill Trahter Veski represents a monument of national importance, with its typical Dutch architectural style. Built in 1899, this well-preserved structure served its function until World War II, when enemy forces cut off its blades in an effort to prevent the locals from using them to send secret signals. Standing 17 m (56 ft) tall, the brick windmill now features reconstructed blades and sits surrounded by traditional gardens. The site also houses a restaurant, where you can try homemade beer and a multitude of local dishes. For Trahter Veski and beyond, use our Saaremaa vacation builder to get the most from your Saaremaa vacation.
