Thaur Muller Run

Thaur, 06.02.2022

A Tirolean carnival custom that is deeply steeped in tradition are the huge parades in the villages west of Innsbruck. This February, Thaur will play host to the Muller Run, which celebrates the natural changes of seasons.

Four years ago, Thaur last celebrated the farewell to winter with the grand Muller Run. In February 2022, the tradition-conscious community of Thaur once again organises this large procession. Hundreds of participants wearing hand carved masks and wonderfully designed costumes will parade down the streets of the tiny village. A huge crowd rallies to this event, often in freezing temperatures, and thousands of locals and guests sing and dance on the streets, awaiting the appearance of the first carnival floats with their dazzling lights, stirring music, bright colours and electrifying energy.

The most characteristic mask characters are the so-called “Klötzler”, “Zottler”, the Witch, “Spiegeltuxer” and “Lall”, dressed up in brilliant colors to better attract the attention of the passers-by. The graceful figures represent the seasons and are symbolic of the fight between the winter and the spring.
