Mehlerhaus Farm in Madseit

In the Zillertal valley, the old Mehlerhaus Farm with its beautiful ancient wooden parlours and the stone kitchen is located.

In the Tuxertal valley, a side valley of the Zillertal, the Mehlerhaus Farm is situated in a large meadow, a witness of peasant culture and popular event location. Parts of the farm date back to the early 16th century, for centuries it was inhabited by the Aisler and Mehler Families. The latter gave the name to the farm. In 1992 the Tipotsch Family built a new farmhouse above the Mehlerhaus and the old farm was abandoned. Now the municipality of Tux is the long-term tenant of the farm and it opened to the public.

With the help of many volunteers, the ancient farm was renovated and finally opened in 1999. An association cares for the preservation of the building. For that reason, numerous events take place in the beautiful farm and vitalize the venerable building with music and many special exhibitions such as “150 years first ascent of Mt Olperer”, “Eternity in the moment” or “Hidden Treasures” of the Zillertal Alps Nature Park. The Mehlerhaus Farm has become a real meeting place and is known far and wide.

Worth seeing are the beautiful centuries-old wooden parlours and the stone kitchen. Upstairs the museum is located. In one parlour one of the four permanent exhibitions “The Magnesite Plant of Tux 1925-1976″ is shown. The other two parlours house the exhibition “Ancient Tools” and the upper parlour called “Mehlerhaus Parlour” shows pictures of the families who lived in the house and the exhibition “Tux - then and now”. Really worth visiting!
