Mulling and Maschgern in the Silberregion Karwendel - preserving tradition and adapting it to modern times: This self-image and attitude to life characterizes the people in the Tyrolean Silver Region Karwendel. As a visitor, you can experience this on Mischief Thursday and turn your skiing vacation into a particularly intense experience.
The Silver Region Karwendel is where the clocks go even slower - just as you would wish more often in our fast-paced times. Carnival has achieved UNESCO cultural heritage status in the Silberregion Karwendel. Responsible for this are the unmistakable Weerer Muller, a customs troupe with Bojazl (=Bajazzo), vanguard dancers, Plattler, witches, the magnificent Spiegeltuxer with its altar-like headdress as well as a wide variety of fertility figures.
In the carnival nights, the young men become Krawitler or Flitscherler, Zottler or Klötzler, who are fully aware of their "supporting role" for the country, people and tradition. The troupe, which can be heard from afar, can be found every Thursday between Epiphany and Ash Wednesday. The children in the Silberregion Karwendel have only one wish after Christmas: to be there on Mischief Thursday as a Maschgerer (= mask, masked) in a colorful costume and to get hold of a carnival doughnut with apricot filling.
