Catch top Edinburgh fringe comedians with the likes of Marcus Brigstocke and pals straight from the ski slopes at Austria’s “funniest show on snow”, the Altitude Festival. The venue is Mayrhofen in the Austrian Tirol and the shows will be from 11-17 December 2016.
Now in its eleventh year, this comedy festival hosts the world’s biggest comics over an intense five days of three shows daily and on the final night of the festival, there’ll be a surprise event which will make the mountains alive with the sound of laughter. The Altitude Festival also intends to top the week off with a spectacular Festival of Light – lighting up the town of Mayrhofen with incredible illuminations, with some free Glühwein and Austrian snacks to warm you up. And, as it’s Christmas , Mayrhofen will be laying on the best Austrian Christmas Market in the nearby enchanted forest.
