Gastein Valley in Salzburger Land will be welcoming representatives of fire brigades from around the world for a special even that will take place from 30.05. to 02.06.2019. Europe's biggest celebration of fire fighters, the International Fire Brigade Rally, is sure to capture the attention of everyone, not just avid fans of the fire-fighting scene.
The International Fire Brigade Rally has been held in different countries every two years since 1975. In 2015 that was Denmark and in 2019 it will be Dorfgastein, Austria. Around 4000 fire-fighting men and women from around the world are expected, traveling to the event with their own vintage vehicles. The program will also include demonstrations, talks given by experts, along with organized trips for the whole family.
One special highlight of this event will be a parade of vintage fire-fighting vehicles on June 1, 2019. In fact, around 200 vehicles will be out there taking on the roads of Gastein Valley. The route leads from Dorfgastein, through the mountainous countryside of Sportgastein, along the famous skyline of Bad Gastein, then via Bad Hofgastein and back to the festival grounds.
