This octagonal tower mill was built in 1806 as an oil and hulling mill. In 1820 a grinder was installed in the mill and from then on flour was also made in the mill. In 1976 the mill was bought by the municipality of Ommen. The mill was then restored, but the interior was almost completely demolished by then. In the late 1980s, flats were built close to the mill, which meant that the mill could catch a lot less wind. Nevertheless, the mill was regularly operated by volunteer millers during that period. It was dismantled in 2013 due to a radical recovery of the mill. Parts of the mill were replaced and the English wheel mechanism was also renewed. In 2014, the mill was ready to turn again, but shortly after the recovery, the almost new outer rod hit the hull while turning. As a result, the mill came to a standstill again. The damaged outer rod had to be repaired and re-plugged. In the meantime, the mill is ready to turn again.

Giethemer Kerkpad

Giethemer kerkpad 5b
8147 RL Ommen

The Giethemer Kerkpad is a path that runs from Giethmen to Ommen. Residents of the town used to walk along this path to church on Sundays. This was the only way there. Giethmen is a hamlet in the municipality of Ommen. The town is located on the left bank of the Regge and Ommen is located on the other bank. This posed a problem for the residents of Giethmen who had to go to church in Ommen. This is how the Giethemer church bridge was created, which ensured that all churchgoers arrived safely at their destination. The bridge is a surprising structure in the middle of the natural and rural landscape. In the past you would find church paths at several places on which people walked to the church. These paths regularly ran over rivers and streams. Many of those church paths have been lost, but here between Giethmen and Ommen the path has been well preserved. A nice reminder of days gone by.

Kasteel Eerde

Kasteel Eerde
7731 PH Ommen

The current castle Eerde is a baroque building dating from 1715. The castle is situated between double canals and around the castle you will find a park with long avenues and wooded areas, laid out in the French landscape style. The interior of the castle is just as special as the outside. The inside of the house still looks almost exactly the same as it used to be. In the 14th century you already found a fortified house made of wood on the site of the castle. The resident was a notorious robber knight who terrorized the area from his castle. In 1380 his den of thieves was burnt to the ground by the Utrecht bishop. The current castle was built by order of an army commander from the War of the Spanish Succession. The building was owned by the same family for a long time. In 1933 a school was established in the castle. This school grew into the international school that can now be found in the castle.

Steile Oever

Hammerweg
7731 PP Ommen

You can take the name Steile Oever literally. This is a moraine from the last Ice Age with a steep bank that has been carved out by the Regge. Today the Steile Oever is an old cut-off meander of the Regge. De Steile Oever is not only unique for its steep banks, but also for its beautiful "viewing axes".
