Forecast

Central European weather is still in summer lethargy! Under weak high pressure, moderately humid, warm air will continue to move into our region. A typical summer day is therefore awaiting us with plenty of sunshine during the day, increasing cloud in the afternoon and thunderstorms in the later afternoon and evening.

Tendency

On Saturday and on Sunday, the air pressure will fall. Low pressure will rise again over Central Europe, which will result in a sultry mix of sunshine, clouds and thunderstorms. The weather on Monday will be dry and hot.

Carnival in Axams

“Wampelerreiten” and other unforgettable carnival traditions

Laugh, celebrate and love life. Axams is one of the six major traditional carnival hotspots in Tyrol. The unforgettable celebrations bring together many traditional customs and lots of dancing – much to the delight of onlookers who look forward to this mad spectacle year after year. In addition to the famous “Wampeler" and "Reiter”, the celebrations also feature traditional characters, such as the “Tuxer”, “Flitscheler”, “altboarische Paarln”, “Nadln”, “Bujazzln”, witches and bears & bear handlers. The wild Tyrolean-style celebrations take the characters from guesthouse to guesthouse, where they share entertaining stories from the village and enthral onlookers both young and old.

Wampelerreiten” – the carnival highlight in Axams

The celebrated finale and absolute highlight of the carnival celebrations in Axams is one of the roughest carnival traditions in the Alps. The famous “Wampelreiten” involves the “Reiter” (riders) attempting to toss the “Wampeler” (fat-bellied ones) onto their backs – symbolizing the struggle between the departing winter and the approaching spring. This rough tradition is always carried out on the last day of carnival (the Thursday before Shrove Tuesday) – and on a larger scale once every four years at the “Großer Axamer Faschingsumzug” celebrations on the Sunday before Lent.
