Christmas Markets in the Dolomites

Alto Adige:

The markets in Bolzano, Merano, Brunico, Bressanone and Vipiteno are famous across Europe and offer a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in local traditions. A combination of craftsmanship and popular culture waiting to be discovered in almost every village in the area, in the mountains and valleys (Val Martello, Val Venosta, Valle Isarco – Alta Valle Isarco, Val Gardena, Merano and its surroundings, Valle di Tures, Bolzano and its surroundings, Val d’Ega, Trenatale sul Renon, Val Pusteria – Alta Pusteria).


The Christmas markets in the Trentino region have grown in importance over the years. With their evocative towns and squares, Trento, Rovereto, Arco, Levico, Pergine and Siror are ever more popular locations for these events. The typical, decorated stalls offer wines and local products, but also Christmas decorations made by craftsmen.  These items and the festive atmosphere alone are enough to bring Christmas alive.


In the Bellunese area too, the tradition of Christmas markets is making its mark.  The classical wooden chalets, set up in the main city squares, provide a meeting place full of festive cheer in which to enjoy the local produce and rich culture of the land.
