Absolutely worthwhile - a visit to the Katzensteinermühle mill.
At the Gaflenzbach, shortly before the confluence with the Enns, you will find this old, fully operational mill from 1820. It was dismantled at its old location and rebuilt true to the original at the Gaflenzbach by the Katzensteiner family. Convince yourself of the romance of this excursion destination.
The Katzensteinermühle originally stood in the Küpferner Hammergraben and had been the house mill of four farms since 1820 and was in operation until 1955. In 1978, the mill was dismantled and moved piece by piece.
Next to the Katzensteinermühle, an old granary from 1850, the "Troadkasten", was rebuilt. In this "Troadkasten" you can trace the history of milling, from the "Reibsteibn" from the 6th century B.C. to the ultra-modern industrial mill of the present day. The latest attraction in the open-air area near the Katzenstein mill is a so-called gang saw.
The surroundings of the Katzensteinermühle were redesigned in 2005. A fish ladder now enables the various species, such as trout, grayling, barbel, huchen, etc., to carry out their natural migration. The automatic weir ensures better flood protection.
