The Hortobágy Mill was built in 1864 as one of the last windmills. This was the largest windmill in Central Europe. Steam engine from 1898, they did not need a sail, so they are removed. The windmill building in its original state however remained. In Debrecen by approx. 100 large and small mills operated. Majority of these are disappeared by the end of the XIX. century. The remaining city's largest mill, the Hortobágy Mill ceased operation in 1959. Served as a warehouse, later was empty.

The building is renovated. June 2013 starts operation the Malom (Mill) Hotel.

Debrecenben az 1860-as években közel 100 gabonaőrlő malom működött, de ezeknek már csak az utcanevekben él az emléke (Ötmalom, Egymalom, Kétmalom utca, Malomköz), egyedül a Hortobágy malom épülete maradt fenn.

Barcsay Miklós a várost övező palánk "Nagy Mester úttczai" kapuján kívül, 1864-ben vásárolt telkén építette fel Közép-Európa legnagyobb szélmalmát, a későbbi Hortobágy malmot. 1898-ban alakították át gőzmalommá és 1959-ig működött. 1958-ban nyilvánították ipari műemlékké. Kezdetben az Országos Malomipari Múzeumnak adott otthont, később raktárnak használták, még később évekig kihasználatlanul, üresen állt.

A felújított épületben 2013 nyarától várja vendégeit a Malom Hotel.
