Thaur

633m

633m above sea level, population 3,668

An unspoilt village, where agriculture still plays an important part – that is how this small settlement at the foot of the Nordkette mountain range would describe itself to the outside world today. Crib carvers, genuine Tyrolean Shrovetide customs, vegetable growers and committed amateur actors are responsible for creating throughout year a lively cultural scene and a commercial centre for the whole region.

Perhaps it's Thaur's Shrovetide "Muller" and their grand procession every four years, who ensure that the radishes and salads, etc. grow so well in Thaur. Everywhere in the Tyrol, discerning consumers look forward to the crisp, fresh vegetables that the growers in Thaur procure from the land throughout the summer. There's every reason why the region is also described as the "Tyrol's largest vegetable garden" – and the residents of Thaur are proud that their region was recently acclaimed by the Tyrolean Agricultural Produce Marketing Board for its "North Tyrolean Vegetables".

It is not just the masks of the Shrovetide figures that bear witness to the town's important carving traditions. Thaur crib carvers are well-known way beyond the province's border. The village has retained an ancient Easter tradition too. The Palm Procession on Palm Sunday is one of the finest in Austria.

Lovers of history and culture will be pleased to know that Thaur has plenty to offer them too. Included on their cultural itinerary should be the municipality's symbol, Thaur Castle, the Church of St Ulrich, the oldest, preserved church in the Tyrol and the idyllically located Romedi Chapel. In the summer months, the castle serves as an impressive backdrop for open-air performances by the Thaur Castle Players.

Thaur is Tyrol's largest vegetable-growing area.

Thaur is packed with options for hikers and fans of culture.
