As a day trip during your winter holiday, we recommend the nearby provincial capital of Bozen, which offers a very special attraction in Advent with the traditional Christmas market on Piazza Walther.  A stroll through the festively decorated old town can be combined with the search for an original Christmas present, or you can simply enjoy a mulled wine with Christmas cookies and revel a bit in the pre-Christmas mood.

The Christmas market stalls offer typical South Tyrolean products, such as woodcarvings, glass and ceramics. Let yourself be enchanted by the atmosphere and stroll through the festive old town, with Christmas sounds in your ears and the scent of baked apples and chestnuts in your nose. A visit to the Christmas market is always something special in the contemplative time of the year.
