Summer Solstice Fire on Markbachjoch Mountain

Niederau, 22.06.2019

There is no better place in Wildschönau Valley from which to enjoy the summer solstice than Markbachjoch Mountain. At 1,500 metres above sea level it offers majestic views of the surrounding peaks, where fires are lit to mark the longest day of the year.

On June 22, 2019, Markbachjochbahn Gondola whisks visitors from the base in Niederau up high into the mountains, where a large campfire provides plenty of warmth. From the top of the gondola there are fabulous views of the many summer solstice fires lit in the Kitzbühel and Zillertal Alps and, on clear evenings, even as far as the Rofan Mountains. There is live music at Markbachjochalm, Rübezahlhütte and Norderbergalm on-mountain restaurants as well as a selection of traditional food.Summer solstice gondola rides take place from 6:00pm to 11:00pm.
