When dusk falls in Brixental, spectators are offered a blazing spectacle:
Over 50,000 torches on the slopes of the Brixental valley create impressive fire images, such as a bull and cow, the coat of arms for the Young Farmers of Brixental.

Every year, the "mountain fires" delight locals and visitors anew, when the clubs from Kirchberg, Brixen im Thale and Westendorf place their symbols, coats of arms and lettering on the freshly mown "natural canvas". Enjoy the best views from the mountains!

The works of art are lit at about 9:30 pm and turn the valley into a starry sky.

Attention! This event only takes place in good weather conditions!

Operating times: Alpenrosenbahn I + II from 7 pm until 11 pm.
