The Great Rum “Muller” Parade
A celebration for all the senses
Epiphany marks the end of the Christmas season and the start of carnival celebrations – when the “Muller” reawaken the powers of nature with their wild spirit. The most famous characters from the village carnival customs are the “Halbweisse”, “Melcher”, “Zaggler” and “Zottler”. These characters represent the four seasons and fill the village with the sounds of whip cracking and a party atmosphere as they parade through the streets.
“Abmullen” and a fertility rite
Getting hit on the shoulder by the elaborately masked carnival characters is something to celebrate: the so-called “Abmullen” is considered an honour, a form of recognition and a fertility rite. The traditional characters, including witches, rams, bears and the “Fasser-Roessl” bring the carnival celebrations to the streets and alleys of Rum. The clever parodies of village community life make stops at the carnival floats particularly entertaining – and the “Altweibermühle” promises eternal youth.
Every four years
The legendary “Muller Parade” is an extraordinary event that takes place in the “MARTHA villages" (Mühlau, Arzl, Rum, Thaur and Absam) near Innsbruck. The parade is hosted in Rum every four years and runs from Schulstrasse to Kirchgasse, St.-Georgs-Weg and Langer Graben. Multiple start points ensure that participating groups always arrive at the perfect time and that visitors don’t have any long waits. Culinary delicacies and numerous regional specialties round off the fantastic experience.
