Advent am Waldfestplatz
It is the ideal time to discover the traditional Zillertal Valley. With the first snowfall, Mayrhofen is transformed into a winter wonderland. During the quiet weeks before Christmas, age old customs are observed – some are contemplative, such as the Klöpflsänger (carol singers). Gorgeous smells of fresh pastries and Christmas punch pervade the atmosphere....
Perfect surroundings for a wonderfully relaxing holiday, with lovely winter walks, fun days out sledging as well as great food in nostalgic alpine guest houses that may just stir up a few childhood memories
Dates for Mayrhofen Advent 2013:
every Friday and Saturday on all weekends in Advent as well as the 8th December from 17.00 to 21.00 hrs..
4 People, 1 Team, the same goal
This relay competition is a race against time and opposing teams: each team consists of 4 athletes, all top sportsmen/women and highly motivated hobby athletes from near and far. They have one challenge in common – to conquer the 410 m in altitude in the best time possible. Be it uphill or downhill: RISE&FALL. Prize money to the tune of 7.000 Euros is up for grabs.
2 Live-Bands, 1 Party
After the prize giving ceremony it is time to party. Local band "Ciela" will take to the stage first to get the crowds going, followed by the day's musical high point, a performance by German rock band "Revolverheld". After the official end of RISE&FALL winter opening, celebrations will continue into the night in the pubs and bars of Mayrhofen.
The best will win - THERE WILL BE NO MERCY!
