24 Reasons You Absolutely Cannot Miss Altitude This December
The world’s number one Alpine comedy festival returns to Mayrhofen, Austria with a special Christmas edition of the funniest show on snow!
1. This will be the view you wake up to
The views in Mayrhofen are absolutely breathtaking, no matter how many times you see them and no matter how hungover you are
2. The line ups are unbeatable
There is no comedy festival on the planet that can rival Altitude’s line ups.
So far they’ve had:
Eddie Izzard – Tim Minchin – Jimmy Carr – Bill Bailey – Jim Jefferies – Sean Lock – John Bishop – Katherine Ryan – Al Murray – Kevin Bridges – Frankie Boyle – Phill Jupitus – Jenny Éclair – Tommy Tiernan – Milton Jones – Ed Byrne – Rob Beckett – Howard Marks – Roisin Conaty – Michael Winslow – Stephen K Amos – Andrew Maxwell – Rufus Hound – Luisa Omielan – Marcus Brigstocke – Simon Evans – Sofie Hagen – Joel Dommett – Gina Yashere – Abandoman – Daniel Sloss – Zoe Lyons – Phil Nichol – Beardyman – Craig Campbell – Nina Conti – The Cuban Brothers – Brendon Burns – Terry Alderton – Michael Mittermeier and loads more…
But it’s often the less well-known acts that the audiences talk about when they head home
3. The food is AMAZING
Ginormous steaks. Mountainous platters. Delicious goulash. Schnitzel. Cheese fondue. Wild Chamois dumpling soup. Tyrolean Gröst.
There really is no better food on earth
4. It’s CHRIIIIISTMAAAAS!
What could be better than a twinkling, fairy-lit, traditional Austrian town to fill you with festive cheer this Christmas?
5. If you’re looking for a party, you’ll find one
Whether it’s night or day there’s always a thumping party happening somewhere in Mayrhofen, with DJs, dancing and live music
6. Your accommodation will look like this
The hospitality in Mayrhofen is absolutely off the scale. You can’t go wrong whether you choose a private chalet, a luxurious lodge or a modest hotel right in the centre of all the action
7. There’s a schnapps distillery!
You can literally see the making of the drink responsible for giving you a sore head every morning
8. You don’t have to be into skiing or snowboarding
There is so much more to Mayrhofen than just skiing and boarding. It also offers cycling, horse riding, Alpine coasters, hiking, llama trekking, water-rafting, swimming and if you’re feeling brave – paragliding down the side of the mountain!
The second event they’re hosting will beat the current world-record and become the Highest Silent Disco ever – taking place at 3250m on top of the Hintertux Glacier!
For the more discerning drinkers among you, the local beer and wine selection is absolutely incredible (but no one will judge if you wash down your vintage Riesling with a shot of schnapps)
