Tési windmills and blacksmith shop (23 km)

The main attraction of Tés is the windmill, which is a rarity in Transdanubia. Fortunately, two remain in the village: the Helt mill, built in 1840, and the Ozi mill, built in 1924, of which the Helt mill is still operational today. A characteristic feature of Dutch-type windmills is that their roofs rotate, their mill trunks are made of stone, and their propulsion structure is the six-sail wing.

In the mills, several types of grain were milled, up to 4 quintals per day under favorable wind conditions.  The Helt and Ozi windmills stand at the end of the gardens of the gates at 16 and 32 Táncsics Street. The monuments of folk and industrial history are the number one attraction for tourists arriving in Tés. In the garden ends, which open from Táncsics street 20, you can find the Helt and Ozi windmills. The two renovated windmills are a monument of industrial history. The windmill of József Helt bognarmester was built in 1840 by János Pircher miller. The circular, slightly slimming, three-storey stone-walled building, its cone-shaped shingle roof can be rotated on a circular rail, so that the six sails can always be set in the wind direction. The mill structure is still in service today. In 1924, the carpenter János Ozi had his windmill built 200 meters from József Helt’s windmill. It has the same structure as the Helt mill only in smaller sizes. In the Helt mill two pairs of stones, in the Ozi mill one pair of stones grind. Both mills are folk monuments.

In the courtyard, in addition to the hand-held agricultural tools, you can see the blacksmith shop of Ferenc Cseszneki, a master blacksmith in his original state, which also worthily preserves the memory of the craftsmen of Tési.
