Lake Thumsee is on fire
The Bad Reichenhall Philharmonic Orchestra’s open-air event at Thumsee
The Alps offer plenty of high places but only one unique highlight: Thumsee is on fire! Bad Reichenhall’s Philharmonic Orchestra performs a summer night concert that also features grandiose fireworks against an impressive mountain backdrop. Each year the event attracts as many as 7,000 fans from near and far. Under the leadership of the conductor Christian Simonis, famous, up-beat and moving melodies are performed before a background of breathtaking alpine majesty. Thumsee brennt – Thumsee is on fire – is the annual cultural highlight of the Alpine Town of Bad Reichenhall.
