Trahter Veski, Kuressaare

(2.8/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very nice and beautiful place fot taking photoes. In summer time it possible to drink some beer and have a rest after trip 
  • Each year, arriving in Kuressaare, go in the Traheir Veski. Once again, take pictures with "kosen'koj" mel'nichihoj, and Miller, who had already "drunk"-pozitivchiki. Know by heart all the details that create an atmosphere of mills and the Estonian colors, but not annoying. In the menu (there is in Russian) always find something new. Delicious, original decorated dishes.
