The custom of St. John’s fire was first documented in the 12th century. In many places it is also referred to as sunfire or solstice fire. At St. John’s fire, the bouquets of flowers and herbs from the High Women’s Day in August of the previous year are thrown into the fire. This was kept dry in the house, yard or barn. Thanks to Michael, Arthur and Isolde for the permission to make the St. John’s fire on the Höhi. The children from Warth and Schröcken are cordially invited to help collect wood in the forest.
- Meeting point: 4. 00 p. m. on the Höhi.
The TG Warth is looking forward to numerous participation and for several parcels, we look forward to smoke signs.
PS: At the fair/herbal consecration/High Women’s Day in August there are always a few bouquets to take away.
