Every year around 4,000 cyclists have a dream: to finish the most demanding cycling marathon in the Alps.

Wandering theatre - September

A travelling theatre from Vent to Marzellferner (Ötztal | Tirol), from morning till evening. Perhaps the most true story of Duke Friedrich of Tyrol and his escape through the Ötztal. A small crowd of spectators experiences the sound level via radio ear buttons, while the actors in their historical garb are once far away and then very close again.
