Fissenknick windmill

Fissenknick is a northern district of Horn-Bad Meinberg , before the reorganization in 1970 district of Oberschönhagen .


The settlement can be found under this name on maps from 1805 (Le Coq, Topographische Karte in XXII Blätter ..., 1805–1806) and 1786 (Map by Frenzel in Droste Gottlieb Levin von Donop, Historical-Geographical Description of the Fürstlich-Lippische Lande in Westphalia, 1786), documentary mentions go back at least to the year 1669 (Günter W. Wilberg; Wilberg 600 years 1392–1992).

The village is best known for its windmill , built in 1847 by the local farmer Jochen Bernd Dickewied . The windmill burned down completely in 1901. In 1925, members of the health resort and tourist association bought the ruins, restored them and set up a lookout tower and an upscale restaurant. The rebuilt mill was donated to the bath. Due to its structural originality, the historic mill primarily attracts tourists. Up until a few years ago, Fissenknick had a corner shop as a shop for the residents, as well as the "Bergklause" restaurant. After the two businesses were closed, the district of Fissenknick has become a purely residential area, apart from the historic windmill.

The center of Bad Meinberg is within walking distance. The place has only an inadequate connection to local public transport. There are therefore only very limited opportunities for leisure activities for young people.

On January 1, 1970, the district of Fissenknick of the former municipality of Oberschönhagen was incorporated into the new municipality of Bad Meinberg-Horn according to the Detmold Act . This was renamed Horn-Bad Meinberg on September 10, 1970 .
