The medieval remains of the Via Claudia Augusta prove that the Romans already appreciated Mils. Inns and stables were built on one striking stretch of road, the "Milser Gstoag", to provide accommo-dation for travellers.

surrounding nature of the Milserberg mountain and the floodplain. The village learned how to preserve its natural tranquillity from its historical time as an important stop off point. Maybe that's why Mils is synonymous with rest and relaxation today. Walking paths, green meadows and sunshine – you just have to take a slow stroll here.
The aim of the Milser Au revitalisation project is to preserve the ecosystem of the grey alder alluvial forest on a long-term basis, and to breathe new life into the natural habitat in order to prevent any further ecological deterioration of the gallery forest.
The revitalisation project, together with the construction of near-natural river control structures, has resulted in the creation of flood retention spaces and valuable habitats for rare animal and plant species.
