A bit of physical strengthening, interesting info about the miller’s work, a lot of proper music and even more culinary tidbits of the region… These are the benchmarks of the Mill Festival in Terenten that promises a perfect Sunday for the whole family.
After the "Sowing" in spring the Mill Festival is the second appointment in the course of the year that is on the program of the traditional series of events "'s Terner Schmelzpfandl" in Terenten in the holiday region Kronplatz. In autumn there are always scheduled a harvest festival, the return of the cattle from the alpine pasture and the gastronomic week "Terner Bauernkuchl".
The Mill Festival itself takes place on the first Sunday in August. Central parts are presentations of the miller’s work: From 10 am to 5 pm the wooden mill-wheels will turn again by water power and the farmers of Terenten will grind their grain just as their great-grandfathers did it decades before.
In doing so you can watch them and get a lot of worth knowing info about the partly more than 500 year old, renovated mills, which are located above Terenten. In order to reach them you can make an easy family hike that has about 230 meters of difference in altitude and takes about one and a half hours. For a fee you can take the shuttle bus, too.
Music & pleasure
Of course the Mill Festival includes also a suitable musical and culinary supporting program. Sweet shredded pancakes, delicious Tirtlan, dumplings, bacon, freshly-baked bread and other delicacies ensure that nobody has to go home hungry from the Mill Festival.
