Röttle village

Röttle village is a breathtaking place with a sense from past times and lush greenery in the garden bays and river banks. In winter, some of the red cottages from the 18th and 19th centuries are closed, but in summer they are populated by summer visitors. Tourists and locals also find their way to this natural and cultural gem.

Two mill buildings – Rasmus Mill and Jerusalem Mill – speak of the village’s heyday. Both mills belong to the Grenna Museum Foundation. Along the river you can also find the foundations of two more mills as well as the first power station of the village. The old tavern building is maintained by the Röttle village association for various activities. Rasmus Mill was renovated in 1976-1977 and restored to its original condition. Its three water wheels and as many pairs of millstones can once again grind grain. The stone mill building was built in 1662 as a drilling manufactory and was converted into a mill around 1700.

Guided tours during the summer months. The embankment around the dam was reinforced in the summer/autumn of 2007 due to flooding after very heavy rainfall. Jerusalem’s mill from early medieval time is a unique relic and one of the oldest surviving secular buildings in the country due to its peculiar construction. It is built on three floors, firmly anchored to the cliff wall at the side of the river channel. Early on, a pier was built next to Vättern. It mainly served the Visingsö farmers and the people from West Gothland, who transported their grain to the Röttle mills through the sea route. The pier was also used for several decades by steamboat traffic. The pier has now been restored by the Röttle Village Association.
