Hinterloch Mill

Near the small village of Ellbögen, a corn mill shows how grain was ground in the past.

In Ellbögen, 12 km south of Innsbruck, a small mill rises along the Rio Falkasaner. This Hinterloch Mill (Hinterlocher Mühle) 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 facility was in operation until 1951, then it rapidly decayed. In 1995 and 1996 it was extensively restored.

Regular grinding demonstrations during summer months offer you an interesting insight into 2,000 years of milling tradition. Afterwards a afternoon snack with high-quality farm products awaits you at the nearby snack station.

The demonstration mill is accessible in a 20-minute hike from the Hinterlarcher parking space in Oberellbögen. First it leads through a forest to a clearing. Then the trail follows the course of the Rio Falkasaner to the small corn mill. The path can also be done by MTB.
