Nonsensical Thursday

Muller and Maschgern in the Silberregion Karwendel - Preserve tradition and adapt it to the present time: This self-conception and attitude to life shapes the people in the Tyrolean silver region Karwendel. As a visitor, you can experience this on nonsensical Thursday and make the ski holiday to a particularly intense experience.

The Silver Region Karwendel is where the clocks go even slower - just as you would often want in our fast-moving time. Carnival has achieved UNESCO cultural heritage status in the Karwendel Silver Region. Responsible for this are the unmistakable Weerer Muller, a customs troupe with Bojazl (= Bajazzo), Vendor Dancers, Plattlern, witches, the magnificent Spiegeltuxer with his altar-like headdress and various fertility figures.

During the carnival nights the young men become crafters or flitscherlers, zottlers or Klötzler, who are fully aware of their "supporting role" of land, people and tradition. The widely audible troupe is to arrive every Thursday between Epiphany and Ash Wednesday. After Christmas, the children in the Silberregion Karwendel have only one wish: to be on the nonsensical Thursday as a Maschgerer (= mask, masked) in a colorful costume and to get hold of a carnival donut with apricot filling.
