Bonfires on the mountains around the Wilder Kaiser do not only blaze away for the summer solstice in June - thousands of torches are lit on the freshly mown mountain pastures also for the event "Brixentaler Bergleuchten", the Brixental mountain lights.
Symbols of the local clubs such as cows and bulls, coats of arms. lettering and much more are then clearly visible. For this mystic spectacle more than 30000 torches are needed. The Mountain Lights have long been known far beyond the Tyrolean border.
At around 9:30 p.m., the associations light their symbols. A fascinating, mystic and overwhelming sight, enchanting and impressive.
Also this year, numerous associations are going to participate in setting out their symbols, coats of arms and lettering in oversized form on the slopes of the Brixental valley.
Tip: there will again be a small summer night party with barbecue at the outdoor swimming pool in Itter that evening.
