Solstice in Saalfelden Leogang
Mountains in flames
Countless mountain fountains adorn the Stone Sea and the Leoganger Steinberge, on summit ridges and in valleys, on plateaus and viewpoints. The view from the valley and the atmosphere of the mountain are unique - just pure magic! The custom of erecting fire on the mountains to the astronomical summer begins dates back to the 12th century, to ward off evil demons, and to promote growth and fertility.
