Colors of Mayrhofen - traditions, festivals, mentality and lifestyle

Many interesting city events are associated with the holiday season. For example, traditionally, the music festival Snowbombing takes place here when the snow is almost gone, but you can still ride. Snowbombing takes the last week of the ski season. It attracts numerous tourists from all over the world. It is interesting, that the event is very popular with travelers from England. Usually, about six thousand Englishmen come here. Quite famous musicians like Liam Gallagher, Craig David, Pendulum, Dizzy, and High Contrast perform here. Snowbombing brings together fans of skiing, snowboarding, and popular music. Festival participants compete in downhill, free ride, freestyle, participate in master classes, share their sports experience with each other, and just communicate in the sun for six days. The action moves to the city's night clubs and bars like Racket Club, Arena, and Europahaus as night falls. People dance to invigorating rhythms with famous DJs until dawn. Everyone goes to their rooms towards dawn. They gather on the mountain slopes only in a few hours.

The annual Rise&Fall race can attract you if you like extreme entertainment or just want to watch sports competitions. This is not just a ski relay, as you might assume, despite the fact that it begins with overcoming a fairly long ski trail. After that, a team of four people will have to make a paraglider flight exactly to the base of the lift. They will also embark on an exciting mountain bike race. Overcoming the track on a snowboard or downhill skiing is the final chord of the event.
Rise&Fall gathers more and more participants from year to year. This is quite understandable because the event is very spectacular. In addition, in general, the complexity of the tracks allows participating in them not only professional athletes but also amateurs. However, even if you do not want to participate in the competition, you should still visit at least the beginning of Rise&Fall for a rather entertaining opening ceremony. Several interesting local freestyle and downhill events take place on local tracks throughout the year. Copyright

This event has been held for fifty years. It can't be called very simple. You will need to climb to a height of 1871 meters and descend to 1613 meters during the route. So this trip will be possible only for experienced travelers. But you will be able to get acquainted with all the beauty of the Alps during the route. Two much simpler routes will be offered for beginners in trekking during Nature Park Hiking Day. The length of one of them is five kilometers, the second – thirteen kilometers.
If you get to the city in the summer, you should look for the so-called Tourism Board's Weekly Program. The events included in the program change every week. You can attend interesting master classes and concerts of folk groups at very affordable prices thanks to this program. If you get to the city at the end of September or at the beginning of October, you can catch the procedure of driving cattle. Cows that have previously grazed in the surrounding meadows return to their stables for the winter at this time. The procession itself is not only interesting but also beautiful.
