Mühlbachl is a pretty municipality comprising eight settlements home to roughly 1,400 residents.
Mühlbachl is situated on the western side of the Wipptal Valley, surrounded by a green oasis of meadows, pastures, fields and forests. The municipality stretches from the southern slopes of the Schönberg mountain through the Matreiwald forest to the point where the Wipptal Valley meets the secluded Navistal Valley. It includes the well-known Maria Waldrast church of pilgrimage with its healing water spring and impressive Servite monastery at the foot of the iconic Serles mountain. Also well worth a visit is the Pfarrkirche Peter und Paul, a parish church built in the 13th century. Mühlbachl is also an excellent starting point for hikes and bike rides into the mountains. In winter there are toboggan runs, cross-country skiing trails and ski pistes to keep outdoor enthusiasts entertained. The village has a number of tennis courts and a popular climbing wall known as simply as the "Basecamp".
