Things to do in Mühlbachl

Mühlbachl is located in the “Serles – Blaser – Zuckerhütl” nature reserve with Mount Serles, the most impressive peak of the lower Wipp valley, also called the “high altar of Tyrol”. The famous pilgrimage site Maria Waldrast, located at the foot of Mount Serles, is also part of Mühlbachl municipality.

Maria Waldrast lies at an altitude of 1,641 m and is home to the highest-located monastery of Central Europe. Its spring, which is said to have curing effects, is open to everyone.
The legend says that two young herdsmen found a miraculous image of the Virgin Mary growing on a tree in 1407. In 1492 a pilgrimage church was erected exactly on the clearing where the image had been found. About 200 years later an impressive Servite monastery was constructed. The St. Mary well adjacent to the church was already used in the 16th century. Recent studies confirm medicinal benefits of the right spinning spring water.
