Mehlerhaus Farm in Madseit

In the Zillertal valley, the old Mehlerhaus Farm is a witness of peasant culture and popular event location

The Mehlerhaus dates back in parts to the early 16th century, and was inhabited for centuries by the Aisler and Mehler families. The latter gave the name to the farmstead. In 1992, the Tipotsch family built a new farmhouse above the Mehlerhaus, and the old building was abandoned. Now the municipality of Tux is the long-term tenant of the farm, and opened it to the public.

With the help of volunteers, the ancient farm was renovated and opened in 1999. The "Kulturerbe Mehlerhaus" association organises numerous events and special exhibitions in this building, such as "150 years first ascent of Mt Olperer", or "Nichts zu verBergen" (Nothing to Hide). The farm has become a meeting place and is known far and wide.

Worth seeing at the Mehlerhaus Farm in Madseit are the beautiful centuries-old wooden parlours and the stone kitchen. Upstairs, the museum part is located: In one parlour the permanent exhibition "The Magnesite Plant of Tux 1925-1976" is shown. In the Solderkammer - the old room with balcony - and in the Hauserkammer you can admire "Ancient Tools of Farming and Household", and the Upper Parlour shows "Pictures of the families who lived in the house".
