UNESCO cultural heritage in Zirl

Tradition is truly nurtured in the charming village of Zirl near Innsbruck.

One example of this is the “Zachäussingen” when people gather to sing the “Zachäuslied”. The event is not ideal for late risers but the early hour gives it special flair and almost hallowed status in the village. Every year, on the third Sunday of October, the bells start ringing at 4.30 am. A good 200 people gather on the square in front of the church to sing the “Zachäuslied”, which was composed in the early 18th century. The song is about penance and remorse but it marks the start of a boisterous celebration with music, dancing and traditional delicacies. The people of Zirl have celebrated like this for almost 300 years. The event is supported by many associations and welcomes children and adults alike.

The custom is featured on UNESCO’s intangible cultural heritage list for Austria.
