Mill Village Gschnitz

The living mill village in the Gschnitztal valley is a particular outdoor museum and an adventure for the whole family.

A journey in time, back to the 19th and 20th century, can be made in the Gschnitztal, a side valley of the Wipptal valley. Starting from the huge parking space behind the Feuerstein tavern, you can reach the Mill Village Gschnitz (Mühlendorf Gschnitz). It's a leisure facility in the shadow of the Sandes Waterfall, that makes our grand-grandfathers come alive and exhibits corn mills, smithies, manufactures, mountain huts, washing machines and bread baking ovens.

By the way, the adventure park has been established by using historic plans, ancient handicraft techniques, and original ancient wood and materials. A little museum provides interesting information as roundabout, in the small mountain hut you can taste delicacies for your palate, and for the little ones there is an adventure playground with water games. On special events, visitors can also experience how sheep are sheared, how a spinning wheel works and how bread is baked.

A trip to the Mill Village can be combined with a hike to the Lapones Mountain Hut, located at 1,472 m a.s.l. and reachable from the parking space in one hour. Also exciting is the path to the Sandes Waterfall and its 40 m long bridge over the gorge. The power of water is more than impressive... and absolutely necessary for the functioning of mills.
