When the large hammer hits the ambos sound energy is produced. This makes an earsplitting noise. This sound can easily be heard outside the mill.
The mill is located in the Ostrachtal, a valley near Bad Hindelang. The mill was built around 1500, thus it's about 500 years old. During the whole time it was used by blacksmiths. Even today it's operated. In former times the main products were different types of weapons, nowadays it changed to frying pans.
