Tadre Mill

Open to the public Tadre Mill is the last of 13 watermills that have existed in Elverdamsdal valley since the Middle Ages.


Tadre Mill brings alive the cultural and natural history of Elverdamsdal valley, focusing on the interplay between people and nature but also the countryside, watermills and agricultural history.

Working mill

Run by the Friends of Tadre Mill, the old mill is often in operation grinding flour, just as various clubs use the mill and the surrounding nature. Mill Marie’s house has been renovated and the mill shop sells coffee, tea, ice cream and other goodies during opening hours. The mill is a perfect outdoor destination, also for a picnic or to let the kids go exploring.

The barn has an exhibition on Elverdamsdal valley’s nature and windmills, focusing especially on the history of Tadre Mill and the people involved with it. Behind the mill, there is a cabbage patch and well-assorted medicinal herb garden.

Paths and limestone

Paths run along the edge of the woods around the mill pond and fields, where the only tufa quarry in Denmark operates. Cattle graze the fields, where you’re welcome to go for a walk by entering through one of the gates in the fencing. Taderød brook runs alongside the paths.

Book a shelter

A lovely nature campsite with three shelters with room for about 20 people is located at the mill in scenic surroundings. The shelters can be booked via ROMU.
