Winter and Christmas aromas in Mühlbach

Mühlbach, with a population of 1,000, is a little village steeped in history situated at an altitude of 777 metres in the Pustertal valley, at the heart of the Gitschberg Jochtal holiday area. Its ancient walls, stately manors and fine buildings make it an interesting destination for a cultural tour. The village was granted market town status in 1269 but its importance in history dates back to even earlier times. In fact, its Mühlbacher Klause fortress used to serve as a toll station, as it was built on what was then the border between the two counties of Gorizia and Tirol. The municipality of Mühlbach comprises the hamlets of Meransen, Vals and Spinges, with a total of just under 3,000 inhabitants.
