Mountain in flames - solstice celebrations in the Kitzbüheler Alpen
24th June 2017, on the mountain peaks in the region
On the mountain peaks in the Kitzbüheler Alpen region, which includes the towns of St. Johann in Tirol, Oberndorf, Kirchdorf and Erpfendorf, fires are lit to intensify the power of the sun and keep evil away from people and animals. You can enjoy the best view to the mountain fires from the Harschbichl mountain station at 1700m. When visibility is good, hundreds of mountain fires can be seen on the peaks in the Wilder Kaiser, Kalkstein, Loferer and in Leogang's Stone Mountains, as well as on the Kitzbüheler Horn.
