Snow-covered mountain peaks, gentle sounds, the smell of cinnamon and festively decorated streets and lanes - the Christmas season in South Tyrol spreads a special magical charm.

Very traditionally, Christmas Markets take place in many cities and towns in South Tyrol every year, attracting thousands of tourists. An unforgettable experience for young and old.

Experience Christmas with all your senses

As soon as it gets dark, hundreds of candles and lights light up the cities and towns of South Tyrol.

In the lovely decorated small wooden huts visitors and Christmas Market lovers will find a large selection of different products and delicacies for soul and palate.

The gastronomy stands offer local specialities such as apple strudel, bread with melted cheese, roasted and caramelised almonds, gingerbread, chocolate fruit skewers, dough and sweets and traditional "Glühwein" (mulled wine).

At the other stands, visitors will find laboriously crafted handicraft products such as Christmas tree decorations, candles, nativity figures and accessories, toys and many other Christmas gift ideas.

Advent magic all over South Tyrol

Besides the classic Christmas Markets in Bolzano/Bozen, Merano/Meran, Bressanone/Brixen, Brunico/Bruneck and Vipiteno/Sterzing, there are also smaller Christmas Markets every year.

Paolo - Appiano/St. Paul's - Eppan there is South Tyrol's largest crib exhibition.
