Mountain Summer Opening
Celebrating summer in the Kitzbühel Alps
When in the Kitzbühel Alps the white of winter gives way to the green of spring, things get lively not only on the Alpine meadows. Because just as colourfully as the deep blue gentian, bright purple asters and subtly yellow primroses, also shines the event programme. From mid-May, no less than four holiday regions of the Kitzbühel Alps show just what variety means.
Be it the Holiday Region Hohe Salve, Brixental Valley, St. Johann in Tirol region or PillerseeTal: Now the time has come to celebrate into mountain summer! And that with plenty of sports, culture, nature and indulgence! No less than 20 Tirolean townships roll out the red carpet for mountain summer and invite visitors to enjoy a wide range of events and culinary treats.
Events to suit all tastes
Where ancient traditions come upon the latest event-culture and lederhosen come upon climbing boots, that’s where the Kitzbühel Alps alpine summer happens. This is ensured by an event programme that could not be much more varied. International sports-highlights, centuries-old customs and great family-events: All this and much more is Mountain Summer in Tirol.
For example at the eldoRADo Bike & Run Festival in Angerberg, where endurance athletes and bike fans reinvent (as good as) the bike. At the Mountainbike-Marathon, Kids-Cup-Race and the new TrailRun-competition, participants surpass themselves before the spectacular backdrop of the Tirolean alpine world.
From two wheels to four hooves the tune changes with the Brixentaler Antlassritt, the horse procession that revives a 300-year-old tradition. At the annual procession, some 90 horseriders from Brixen, Kirchberg and Westendorf delight guests and locals with their decked out horses.
Things are no less quaint at the Dirndl- and Lederhosen Festival, when everything revolves around traditional costumes once more in St. Johann in Tirol. Taut calves, fancy Dirndls and hearty treats make for great vibes and a proper helping of “Alpine-Lifestyle”.
