Acquaintance with many historic and natural sights of Sölden gives a lot of impressions, as each of them is unique and has its own history. A water mill is one of the oldest buildings that have managed to survive here. Built more than 150 years ago, the structure is fully functional, which makes it unique today. The last major reconstruction of the mill was carried out in 1990. A small museum dedicated to the history of the region was opened within its walls.
