The Christmas Markets in Val Gardena

The days are getting shorter, and the streets with their twinkling lights are already covered by the first blanket of snow. This really special atmosphere is a delight for all ages, and even more enjoyable during the Christmas Markets in Val Gardena.

Christmas village Ortisei

At this time of year, Ortisei is magically transformed into a real Christmas village: every corner resounds with lovely Christmas melodies and the village streets are filled with the tempting aroma of delicious specialities straight from the oven. Typical regional products are on sale from wooden stalls in the market. In addition, the Ortisei Christmas Market offers a varied programme of associated events. For example, every day in Piazza Stetteneck you can see a window in the Advent calendar being opened up.

Another attraction is the post box in Piazza Stetteneck, where children can post their Christmas letters. They only need to slip a note with their wishes into the box and it will soon be delivered to the addressee.

Do you want to enjoy this magical Christmas atmosphere at first hand? You are then in the right place to find your perfect choice of accommodation in Val Gardena.

Here  is the up-to-date programme.

Christmas market in Santa Cristina

The best that Christmas has to offer can all be found at the Christmas market of Santa Cristina in Val Gardena. It is an event where the organisers focus not so much on the quantity as on the quality of the products. There is everything from local crafts, like the nativity scene figures carved in wood and beautiful Christmas decorations, to textiles and knitwear, books and paintings, candles, wrapping paper and Christmas candles. There is also the unmissable mulled wine, perfect for warming up, and typical local sweets like the "Weihnachtszelten " (panforte).

Christmas in the Mountains: "Mountain Christmas" - Selva di Val Gardena
