Christmas markets in the Alps
The Christmas markets in Alta Badia are characterised by peacefulness, Ladin culture and tradition
The Christmas markets are an important part of the Christmas tradition in the Alps and of course, in South Tyrol as well. In cities such as Bolzano/Bozen, Merano/Meran, Bressanone/Brixen and Brunico/Bruneck, Christmas markets are an established tradition.
For some years now Alta Badia, the Ladin valley in the South Tyrolean Dolomites, has also been offering visitors two enchanting Christmas markets, inspired by Ladin culture and tradition.
The traditional wooden stalls, set up in the centre of the villages of Corvara and San Cassiano, create that special romantic atmosphere. In the pedestrianised centre of San Cassiano and in the centre of Corvara, you can go for a walk, admire the winter landscape of the Dolomites, taste local specialities and watch demonstrations by local artisans.
