Mountain Fire in Ehrwald

The yearꞌs summer highlight

When the mountains are in flames in the Tyrolean Zugspitz Arena, this attracts lots of visitors from other parts of this country and also from abroad. Our valley basin around Ehrwald is perfectly created for this old custom; that is why the mountain fires in the Tyrolean Zugspitz Arena rank among the most beautiful in the Alpine region.

Austriaꞌs UNESCO Cultural Heritage

These traditional mountain fires honour an old custom. The idea was that fire is used to chase away demons and to dispel the dangers that originate from the mountains. 

In 2010 UNESCO adopted the mountain fires into its list of Austriaꞌs Cultural Heritage, as a defining feature of Tyrolean custom.

We are extremely proud of this and, every time it comes around, we are happy to be able to celebrate the summer solstice, the shortest night of the year, with this extraordinary festive occasion.
