Tyrolean solstice fire

Stunning and full of awe you look at the burning mountains. At the summer solstice, the mountains of the Silberregion Karwendel become the magnificent backdrop for a flaming spectacle. During the custom of the mountain fires, long chains of fire and fire images can be seen on the ridges and mountain crests, immersing them in a mystical light and astonishing locals and guests alike. It is the longest day and shortest night of the year. The solstice fires are customs, cultural assets and art at the same time. What is today to enchant the eyes and immerse the Alpine region in a mystical light, has its origins in the peasant culture.
