The festival “stummer schrei”, an event of the Tyrol Cultural Summer, takes place every two years in the centre of Stumm
Altitude: 556 m a.s.l.
The small holiday resort Stumm is located opposite Kaltenbach in the middle of the Zillertal valley. Interesting buildings are the late Gothic parish church dedicated to St. Rupert, which houses some striking pieces of art are such as the ceiling fresco by Christof Anton Mayr and the relief by Nissl dated 1756, and Stumm Castle, surrounded by a lushly planted park in the heart of the village. This mansion was established in 1551 in the style of Tyrolean noble mansions.
In summer, the Stumm Swimming Pool provides refreshment on hot summer days. Moreover, every two years in high summer there is the famous international culture festival "stummer schrei", a play on words. Stumm refers to the village, but the word also means "mute" or "silent", and "Schrei" is cry. So the "stummer schrei" is a "silent cry". Theatre performances, concerts as well as exhibitions take place in locations such as the parish church and the inns around the village square, considered to be one of the most beautiful squares of Tyrol.
However, also winter is not at all boring at Stumm, as all skiing areas of the Zillertal valley are within easy reach. They include the famous Zillertal Arena with its 150 km of slopes and the Hochfügen Ski Region offering a variety of 91 km of ski slopes. The offer is completed by the two cross-country ski trails in the village, called Ahrnbachloipe and Loipe Aschau - Stumm.
