Old mill in Sanssouci Park

This mill was made famous by an anecdote. The King was bothered by the noise, so he set about trying to convince the miller to stop working or to leave the place. He tried everything, going so far as to offer him money and threatening him, but to no avail. So Frederick II took the miller to court - and lost, in accordance with the principle that "in court, the law must speak and the king keep quiet.
