Brunico combines the charm of a small town with the distinctive atmosphere of a winter sports resort. With the Kronplatz Mountain in the background, while strolling through the streets of the Old Town you will feel this unique mix of Alpine comfort and Italian Dolce Vita. That’s why a visit to the Christmas market in Brunico is an absolute must in the pre-festive season. The joyful anticipation is taking over the city. Lovely decorated stands offer arts and craft, sweet treats, handmade decorations and culinary delights. And what’s better than spending a cosy winter evening together with friends while having a mug of mulled wine.

In the alpine region the original Tyrolean crib is as much a part of the Christmas celebrations as Christmas trees and the baby Jesus. This year at Bruneck’s Christmas Market we will be devoting an especially large space to the crib. In the Tschurtschenthaler Park there will be a crib walk displaying cribs from a private collection, whilst in the Ursuline convent guests this year can marvel at extremely valuable and venerable cribs, some of which are as much as 300 years old.
On 22 December the living crib will process through Bruneck’s historic old town.
Since 2016 South Tyrol’s Christmas Markets have been certified as “GreenEvent”, a quality label based on authenticity and regionality, known for long as key values for South Tyrol. The main aspects are the use of environmentally friendly products, reduced energy consumption, efficient waste management, regional added value and social responsibility.
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
The Silent Point in Sternbach Palace offers people a quiet room where they can give expression to their wishes and thoughts. Wishes are written on tapes, which, knotted
together, create a collective Christmas feeling.
Towers of Feelings
The towers made from clay books stacked on top of one another symbolise different feelings. Each letter stands for a human sentiment.
Forest of Masks
Various clay masks are displayed in an illuminated winter forest. What do the mysterious heads want to tell us?
Pro Artes, the local artists’ collective, will be exhibiting their works in the shop windows, bars and stores of the upper town for the duration of the Christmas Market.
“Give me an illusion” light installation
The light installation represents a dialogue between light and threads. In a time of disorientation, they show us a possible way, just as once the star appeared to guide the
