Spark ignition in Jungholz

Spark ignition (Funkenfeuer) in Jungholz

In the Tannheimer Tal holiday region, spring begins on February 25 2023, always one Sunday after Ash Wednesday. Then, in Jungholz, the spark witch, the life-size embodiment of the cold season, is symbolically burnt.  This is one of many traditions that are still lived in the Tyrolean high valley. From 8 p.m. everyone who yearns for the warm season meets at the Jungholz fire station. With Funkenküchle, a sweet lard pastry and the last mulled wine of winter for the time being, locals and guests get in the mood for spring before the huge fire.
