Christmas & Christmas Markets in South Tyrol

Many visitors agree that the finest Christmas markets are located in South Tyrol. Indeed, during the holiday season Christmas markets truly transform South Tyrol’s villages and cities into something out of a fairytale. The scent of freshly baked cookies and apple strudel hangs in the air, market stalls with traditional, handcrafted South Tyrolean products and handmade Christmas tree decorations invite visitors to stroll around. Warm up with a delicious mulled wine or fruity punch. In addition to the five original South Tyrolean Christmas markets in Bolzano/Bozen, Merano/Meran, Bressanone/Brixen, Vipiteno/Sterzing, and Brunico/Bruneck, many other villages host worthwhile Christmas markets.

South Tyrol's Rural Christmas Markets

Small but beautiful: rural Christmas markets take place in valleys throughout South Tyrol, all full of the atmosphere of yesteryear and remote from the bustle of the large towns.
