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.

The best that Christmas has to offer can all be found at the Christmas market of Santa Cristina in Val Gardena.

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

The spicy scent of gingerbread biscuits and the typical aroma of mulled wine, Christmas and Advent carols, beautiful gifts, the nativity scene and the Advent calendar, and much more besides. The Christmas Market in Selva di Val Gardena also has a special attraction that makes the town as alluring as the ski slopes higher up: there is a continuous strip of lights 350 metres in length, hung with the small cabins of a cable car, all beautifully carved in wood. It is a marvel which will amaze not only the children!
