A sparkling shower of colour at the end of the Streif
Every New Year should be welcomed with an impressive firework display and the New Year’s Day celebrations in Kitzbühel are no exception. The only difference here is the timing, with bright lights not filling the sky until the evening of 1 January. When the time comes around, tens of thousands of spectators are treated to a truly spectacular visual extravaganza at the foot of the Streif downhill run. The evening begins with the Kitzbühel ski schools performing a varied torchlight descent that lights up the snow-covered winter landscape, followed by the impressive work of firework expert Armin Lukasser. The Tirolean Pyrotechnics World Champion knows exactly how to take aesthetic “explosions” and audio highlights that are as touching as they are electrifying and transform them into a fascinating show that captivates its audience for nearly 30 minutes. His fireworks are truly magical moments sparkling in the dark night sky.
