Curling in Fieberbrunn
This sport has been a tradition in PillerseeTal for hundreds of years and really is a sport for the people. Up until a few decades ago this fun on the ice was the reserve of men, but today most towns have a women's and men's mixed team. Two teams ("Moarschaften") attempt to shoot their curling stones from the standing area ("Stehmatz") as close as possible to a wooden cube ("Hasei"). It is rare that a visitor gets such a great opportunity to take a look into the soul of the Tirol people than they can during a curling session. Spectating and listening in can, if you understand Tirolean, be highly entertaining. Of course it's also really fantastic to visit one of the curling rinks yourself in Fieberbrunn, Hochfilzen, St. Jakob in Haus, St. Ulrich am Pillersee and Waidring.
