Midsummer bonfire

The highlight of the evening is when the bonfire at the lake by the mountain farms is lit at 21.00. Everyone gathers around the lake and enjoy the music and the unique athmosphere with the fire in the light summer night.

We recommend to bring a picnic basket and enjoy the food in our beautiful surrondings. Food and beverages are also sold in different places in the open-air-museum.
