From 1.550m you have the perfect view to the Wilder Kaiser with the glowing chain of lights. A medieval custom, which also has a long tradition in Tyrol, are the mountain fires that are lit at the solstice. Numerous clubs and groups set out every year to light their bonfires on this evening to celebrate the longest day of the year. Shortly after dark, large solstice fires shine from the mountains and provide a mystical backdrop. Spectacular fire images with different motifs and symbols can be seen. Also along the peaks and the mountain range of the Wilder Kaiser Mountains, the torches shine with nightfall.
