The solstice festival has a wonderful backdrop in the centre of the village of Rettenschöss. So close to the Kaiser mountains, a very special atmosphere unfolds on this evening. The programme of the event starts at 6 p.m., with the focus being on the mountain fires. There is of course plenty of entertainment, with traditional music, dancing, lots of fun and a great ambience, including live music! Hearty Tyrolean foods and all kinds of drinks make the solstice festival a unique experience. The undisputed highlights are the mountain fires, during which clubs and associations from the area light up the mountain summits and surrounding slopes with mountain fires and fire symbols. The event only takes place in good weather.
A free bus transfer in the Kaiserwinkl enables locals and guests alike to enjoy a hassle-free trip to the festival and a safe homeward journey.
The festival is organised in association with the Kaiserwinkl tourist office in conjunction with the volunteer fire service in Rettenschöss.
