Copper hammer mill[edit]

Thießen copper hammer mill (Kupferhammer Thießen) is an industrial monument and the only copper hammer mill in Saxony-Anhalt. It lies in a park, roughly 1 hectare in area. The Rossel stream, which flows through the park, is impounded above the mill into a hammer pond, part of which drains freely, but part of which is used to drive the water wheels of the mill.
