Lodging in an architectural monument of 1665. Next to the sweeping waters of the ‘Mühlbach’ and in the old village square of Schmilka with shady bowers at the ‘Mühlenhof’ beer garden and the panoramic sauna at the ‘Badehaus’: here resonate the spirit of history and craftsmanship with bakery and mill, brewery and culture.
At the ‘Hotel zur Mühle’ you’re living in ecologically renovated, lovingly decorated mill rooms. It’s an exceptional place in a historic ambience, characterized by the scent of natural wood and selected antique furniture and home accessories.

As a guest of the “Hotel Zur Mühle”, you not only book a bed, but the three pillars of the holiday philosophy of the Eco-Retreat Schmilka: Accommodation + Culinary + Events.
The Hotel zur Mühle is located in the middle of the historic center of Schmilka, in the immediate vicinity of the bathhouse, the Mühlenhof and the Braumanufaktur, located in the heart of the Saxon-Bohemian Switzerland National Park. Surrounded by forests and rock massifs of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, small half-timbered houses crowd up the hill to the historic water mill, and hotels and guest houses line the banks of the Elbe. It is not surprising that this place was given the title "Most beautiful village of Saxony". You just have to experience this gem between village culture and nature.
The Hotel zur Mühle directly on the Malerweg has 6 rooms between 20 m² and 33 m² and 2 suites with 42 m² and 45 m². A healthy indoor climate through clay plaster and lime paint, electro-smog-free through mains disconnection and shielded electrical installations, metal-free beds and natural latex sleeping systems, soaped natural wood floorings and wall radiant heaters make the holiday an all-round feel-good experience. Parking spaces are located about 200 meters away on a private property.
Take a refreshing break in the cozy rooms and suites of the Hotel zur Mühle and let yourself go really well. In the morning, wake up to an extended late-riser breakfast with crispy-fresh bread rolls from the historic mill and organic bakery on the “Mühle”. How about a treatment or massage? Or you can use the panorama sauna opposite the watermill in the bathhouse and enjoy the pleasant smell of wood and natural materials. During the winter season, take a brave dip in one of the heated bath tubs or meet for a social gathering by the fireplace in the Mühlenhof. Explore on a hike, bike ride or even by paddle boat the beautiful surroundings of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. Bicycles and e-bikes can be rented on site. Then come back to the beer garden in the Mühlenhof with hearty meals and treat yourself to a refreshing organic beer from the brewing company Schmilka. Or enjoy fresh and regional organic cuisine in the organic restaurant StrandGut and Café Richter on the Elbe. The evening will end relaxedly with amusing lectures on Schmilka's local history, live music in the Mühlenhof or a fun tournament at one of the historic slot machines in the mill.
You can easily reach Schmilka by train no. S1 from direction Dresden, stop Schmilka-Hirschmühle. Cross with the historic ferry "Lena" from 1924 and the holiday can start. The central reception is located in the Eco-Hotel Helvetia.
