Events around Thiersee
The stage is set! The Kufsteinerland offers innumerable possibilities and entertainment programmes to be able to enjoy top-class cultural events in a relaxed way - from the Tyrol Festival in Erl to the Summer of operettas on the Kufstein fortress.
Since 1799, the traditional Passion Plays Thiersee have been performed in our small village. Every six years, the population of Thiersee stages the last days in the life of Christ in an impressive way. From June to October 2022, it's time again and over 250 inhabitants of all ages from Thiersee will contribute towards this big spectacle. Experience an impressive manifesto for tradition and faith when a whole village enters the stage together. More information on the dates and ticket prices can be found here.
Also the municipality of Erl as the oldest Passion Play town in the German-speaking countries invites you to its Passion Plays about 30 minutes from Thiersee! Since 1613, every six years (i.e. the next performance will be in 2025) around 600 amateur acteurs of the 1450 inhabitants reenact the Passion Play in gratefulness of God's protection and help with sickness, plague and the danger of war. The Passion Play theatre can seat 1500 visitors and was solely erected for the Passion Plays with its unique architecture and acoustics. The text was edited by Felix Mitterer. More infos can be found here.
Public concerts by the local brass bands, musical evenings or theatre performances on the folk stage Alpenland - week after week our guests have the opportunity to also experience regional cultural events! All current dates can be found in the daily morning mail on your breakfast table or in the weekly journal at the reception.
Guests as well as locals can use the free shuttle to get to and from the Tyrol Festival Erl or the summer of operettas also this year. The shuttle bus ONLY leaves if you sign up at the reception before.
