Forecast

The well-known but not really popular Icelandic low has left its place out on the Atlantic and is now situated over the North and Baltic Sea. Such a strong low so close to the Alps means quite unsettled weather for our region, too. The weather will unstable and cold all day long. It will bei cold.

Tendency

The westerly airflow will continue to dominate our weather. We can therefore look forward to a mixture of sunshine, clouds and light precipitation. Temperatures will become milder.

Plague column Axams

Description

When the black death raged in Tirol.
Our holiday village was plagued by two plague epidemics in the 14th and 17th century. The first wave hit the village of Axams in the year 1348. The second epidemic raged in Omes, Kristen and Birgitz in the year 1630. To this day, the plague pillar still reminds in the middle of the village center of Axams. Originally built in the Richtergasse, this granite column was later positioned directly on the Dorfplatz. The stone column of breccie has a three-sided design with painted quadrangle as well as a pyramid roof of stone. The picture panels in these niches with representations of saints were made by Anton Tiefenthaler around 1950.
