also Christmas will be very special this year! Nevertheless, we are going to transform our beautiful city into a Christmas Wonderland. Enjoy this special time with your beloved ones and explore the joy of Christmas in our wonderful town.
So come and visit us in Bruneck/Brunico.
We are waiting for you!
In Tschurtschenthaler Park
Visitors will be whisked away into a traditional Christmassy atmosphere and bewitched by the magnificent scenery and intoxicating aromas of South Tyrol's herbs and plants.
During Advent the Oberstadt (Upper Town) has a special way of standing out from the hectic commercialism of the run-up to Christmas, becoming a place for art, peace,
reflection and wishes.
Exit - Silent Point
Silent Point in Sternbach Palace is a private initiative by a group of residents of the Oberstadt, or upper town, which has been a real Christmas highlight for two years. A minimalist, alternative perspective on this time, the opportunity to pause for a moment and express one's wishes in writing, a wish tree produced from these messages and an unexpected atmosphere that encourages visitors to reflect.
The oversized lampshades in the upper town were created this year by Leonard Alberti. “Christmas will still be beautiful. We should see the lamps as a metaphor for the fire that burns bright at the heart of society and that unites us all. Even though 2020 didn’t bring what we had hoped it would, at least Christmas will be beautiful,” explains the artist.
Stadtgasse and Graben will be lit up with the magnificent Christmas illuminations, whilst Graben will also be decorated with many little trees bedecked in turn with cribs and carved animals for us all to marvel at.
“Glimmer of Light - Bruneck lights up”
The “Gefühle” (Feelings) Group from the Pro Artes association has recreated the old town of Bruneck in clay. These wonderful buildings and landmarks will be on display in otherwise empty shop windows in the town.
“Longing for light”
A light installation by Helmut Fuchs, will delight visitors in otherwise dark parts of the town.
The larger than life crib can be admired by the Christmas tree in the upper town.
As an alternative to the St. Nicholas procession, the kids can get creative instead. The Trayah sheltered workshop has cut out 400 wooden stars ready for children to paint. As a thank you there will be a St. Nicholas made from fair trade chocolate for every star. The Christmas trees in the town will then be decorated with the stars.
