Illumination of the River Illumination of the River
For over 100 years, the Thiery family has released tiny burning lights onto the Danube. Until a few years ago, this tradition occurred alongside the summer solstice celebrations in the Wachau. Nowadays, wax-filled eggshells float down the river exactly one week after the solstice celebrations.

A spectacle that is both splendid and introspective, the event is not to be missed.
