The wooden roof is covered with reeds. The mill was completely demolished before 1970 and converted into a silo. A major restoration followed in 1970. Slangenburg originated at the end of the Middle Ages. In the 17th century, the castle became the property of the general Frederik Johan van Baer, who renovated it so that he could live there. The last private owners, the Passmann family, were Germans. Members of this family are buried in the special cemetery next to the moat. After the war, all German possessions were confiscated and the castle became the property of the Dutch state. The castle and the grounds and buildings within the outer moat are part of the portfolio of the Government Buildings Agency; the surrounding estate falls under the care of Staatsbosbeheer. Nowadays the castle is used as a guest house for the abbey. The monastery estate and chapel are open to the public. The centuries-old avenue system on the estate is special. It is laid out in the shape of a trapezium. Since 2010, the Pieterpad (LAW 9) has been running along the Slangenburg (stage Zelhem - Braamt). The Grafelijke tower mill is probably the oldest existing windmill in the Netherlands. In all likelihood the mill was built before 1441. Growth ring research has shown that the right joint wood in the canopy comes from a tree that was felled before 1440. Until the 20th century, the mill belonged to the lords and counts of Huis Bergh Castle. In 1839, the interior of the mill was modernized. After the mill came into private hands in the 20th century, demolition was threatened. However, in 1929 the mill was transferred to a foundation. The mill was restored in 1963, 1974, 1991 and 2005 and grinds grain on a voluntary basis. The mill has two pairs of grinding stones. The medieval building has very thick walls and very old floorboards, making it one of the most special mills in the Netherlands. The Braamtse Molen (or Koenders Möl) is a thatched ground sailor. The mill is one of two mills in the Netherlands equipped with Beckers valves. The other rod contains Bussel's system. The mill has 1 pair of 16er artificial stones.
