Solstice in Saalfelden Leogang

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.

The ancient customs of the 12th century are closely related to St. John's Day.

The carnivorous fire can be found in various forms almost all over Europe, in Salzburg and Tyrol many hundreds of mountain fires are lit in the mountains and form such impressive mountain chains dipped in mystic light.
