24th August 2019 in Brixen im Thale, Hopfgarten, Itter, Kirchberg and Westendorf
The "Brixentaler Bergleuchten" celebrate midsummer in Tyrolean Brixental valley in the traditional way: mid-August thousand of flaming torches light up the night and surrounding mountains. As the sun sets in the Brixental Valley, a burning spectacle lights up the hills for all to see: More than 40,000 torches create impressive images on the mountainsides of the Brixental, such as bull and cow, the coat of arms of the Brixental Young Farmers. Every year the "Bergleuchten" delights both locals and guests, as the associations of Kirchberg, Brixen im Thale and Westendorf display their symbols, arms and initials on the freshly mown, natural canvas. Around 9:30 p.m. the works of art are lit and the valley is transformed into a flickering starlit sky.
