Enjoy the magic

The Christmas Market in Bolzano may be the highlight of your stay over the winter holidays. Italians love to celebrate holidays and Christmas is no exception. There are many markets available for those who love to shop and the Christmas markets are a great place to have fun and soak up the unique local culture of the area. Upon your arrival, stop by the food stands with your family. The strudel and apple fritters are savory and go well with a nice cup of mulled wine. Enjoy the local holiday traditions while you explore 80 different exhibits. There is a market located near the food stands, targeted to small children where they can choose a lot of original gifts, handmade ones included. Piazza Walther always has fir trees decorated festively along with the traditional advent wreath and nativity scene.
