The Ronmühle in Schötz

The 400-year-old Ronmühle (mill) in Schötz (Canton of Lucerne) houses the approximately 7,000 objects of the collector Paul Würsch, who died in 2002.

The collection in the mill consists of objects that have shaped the lives of ordinary people in the hinterland of Lucerne for many generations.

The collection is housed in different rooms of the historic mill. There is a living room, a bedroom, a schoolroom, a kitchen, a workshop and two rooms with religious objects. The rooms also contain magical objects, curiosities, tools and everyday objects from various centuries.

The aim of the association “Freunde der Ronmühle” (Friends of the Ron Mill) is to keep the collection and the mill accessible to the public and to record its history and culture.
