Near the village of Ellbögen, 12 km south of Innsbruck, a small mill shows how grain was ground in the past.

In Ellbögen, a small mill rises along the Rio Falkasaner. It probably dates back to the 16th century, when there was a miller for 11 farmsteads at a time, who took care of the mill and the grinding operation. The Hinterloch Mill was in operation until 1951, then it rapidly decayed.
In the years 1995 and 1996 it was extensively restored and made open to the public. Regular grinding demonstrations during summer months offer an interesting insight into 2,000 years of milling tradition. Afterwards a snack with high-quality farm products awaits you.
The Hinterloch Demonstration Mill (Hinterlocher Mühle, in German) is accessible in a 20-minute hike from the Hinterlarcher parking space in Oberellbögen and leads through a forest to a clearing. Then the trail follows the course of the Falkasaner brook to the small mill. The path can also be done by MTB and represents a beautiful destination for families.
Where: along the Rio Falkasaner near Ellbögen
Characteristic: still functioning mill with grinding demonstrations
