Forecast

The area of high pressure which has influenced our weather for the last few days is moving towards the Balkans; at the same time weather fronts accompanied by thunderstorms will push in from France. However, they will not reach us before the evening and this is why we will get another sunny summer day with high temperatures.

Tendency

Saturday morning will still be cloudy and showers cannot be excluded. In the course of the day, however, the sun will gain the upper hand. Before Sunday the weather will be fine again.

Hinterlocher Mill in Ellbögen

Tradition you can experience. Culture you can touch.

Original, idyllic, Tyrolean. The hike to Hinterlocher Mill takes approx. 30 minutes and is one of the special excursions on offer in Innsbruck’s southern holiday villages. The route leads to Innerellbögen, where the striking mill is located on the “Falkasnerbach” stream, and then back via Oberellbögen. At the Hinterlocher Mill, visitors get an insight into 2,000-year-old milling techniques, which were still practiced here until 1951. The mill’s cog wheel bears the date 1738 but this likely refers to the date when the wheel was replaced – the mill is actually estimated to be 200 years older.

A mill experience with character

This exceptionally well-maintained building is even more impressive from the inside: the mill is open for milling demonstrations every Friday from 2 pm until 6 pm from the beginning of July until mid-September. Farmers from the local area serve up tasty Tyrolean snacks and homemade specialities. The sale of these local products finances the preservation of the mill. Admission is free of charge.

The mill owners

Hinterlocher Mill is one of eleven farms with several owners (Schneider, Truieler, Fuchs, Adamer, Kastner, Schrötner, Lener, Hinterlarcher, Singer, Käfer and Walzer). A mill manager was selected from within this group on a rotating basis and was responsible for supervising milling operations and keeping the mill itself in good working order.
