Our night watchman in Obertilliach

At present, our night watchman is Helmut Egartner.Nachtwächter
The most well-known tradition in our village
is the tradition of the night watchman. He is the only one in Austria, therefore it is a must for everyone,
to have seen him once.

The night watchman has been around since
the 14th Century.

He made his rounds every night at 10 o'clock p.m. and at midnight.

The night watchman profession has had
organizational changes a few time but the same "night watchman's song", which the night watchman sings every round has remained.
