South Tyrolean Christmas markets

San Candido Christmas Market

Ever since the first time, in the winter of 2013-2014, the San Candido Christmas Market, also known as Christmas in the Dolomites in San Candido, has proven to be a genuine attraction for the public. That is probably also because the concepts of tradition and naturalness particularly stand out during the San Candido Christmas Market and the pedestrian precinct surrounding the Church of Saint Michael is enveloped in an especially romantic light.

What Christmas in the Dolomites in San Candido offers is true enchantment. The traditional small wooden stalls above all offer lovely hand crafted Christmas gift idea products, such as warm felt slippers and snug blankets, classic decorations for decorating Christmas trees and a large number of sculptures made from stone pine.

Absolutely not to be missed at the San Candido Christmas Market, one of the region's smallest markets, are the delicious local South Tyrolean specialities such as the “Lebkuchen” (panpepato biscuits made with flour, honey, almonds and candied fruit), the “Zelten” (traditional fruit bread) and vin brulé or “Apfelglühmix” (South Tyrolean apple juice boiled with orange juice and spices). Enjoy this fairy tale atmosphere and relish in the listening pleasure of the refined notes of Christmas carols. The accommodations in San Candido will also positively amaze you with their sensational offers for the Advent period.
