Advent time has a different pace in South Tyrol: at dusk lights are illuminating and warming up the atmosphere, the scent of mulled wine and Christmas bakery goods is filling up the air. South Tyrol’s Christmas Markets focus on regional craftmanship and quality products, for which the region is known for. Bolzano has a vibrant city flair with its known Piazza Walther square, Merano impresses with great decorated Christmas trees and modern designed huts, former bishopric town of Bressanone and Brunico stand out with their Medieval town centres and Vipiteno amazes with its unique atmosphere of Christmas beneath the Zwölfer tower. Magical moments all around the region and the 5 stars route.
Music expresses more than 1000 words could say – this year the Christmas market Brunico highlights on the sounds and the melodies of Christmas. Concerts of choirs and brass bands are part of the wide-ranging side events..
