Torch burning in Montafon

Bonfires in the Montafon on 9. and 10. March 2019

Funkensonntag [Bonfire Sunday] is an ancient spring custom – full of symbolism and originating in pre-Christian times.

One of the oldest customs of the valley is torch burning. On so-called Funkensonntag, the first Sunday after Fasnacht [carnival], an artistically layered wooden tower of up to 30 metres tall is lit. With the burning of the flame-witch and the torch swinging on the mountain and in the valley, we drive out the demons of winter and greet the light – the last remnant of ancient sun worship.
