Greit Mill and Saw

The corn mill and the saw in the mountain village of Greit are open to the public as cultural monuments.

In the hamlet of Greit at the entrance of the Pfundser Tschey - a high valley which stretches up until 1,700 m a.s.l. - a particular sight is located: the Greit Mill (Greiter Mühle) at 1,300 m a.s.l. and the Greit Saw (Greiter Säge) at 1,400 m a.s.l. Both can be visited.

The Greiter Mill, first mentioned in 1856, was powered by a turbine since 1952. The turbine replaced the old water wheel. Almost 10 years later, in 1961, the last miller gave up work - the corn mill fell into ruin rapidly. In 1994 finally it was restored and opened to the public as a cultural monument. The smoke room and the panelled parlour can be visited, and the milling process can be watched. Today the old mill wheels clatter again at the Pfundser Tscheybach creek, and during the opening hours bread is baked in the stone oven, according to an old recipe.

About 100 m higher, the Greit Saw from the 18th century is located. Until 1950 it had a saw blade, then the saw was rebuilt. In 1966 finally, it was adapted to diesel drive. Since 1973 the saw was not operating anymore, and in 1998 it was fully restored. Today the Greit Saw is fully functional again, and needs about 10 minutes for one round.
