In the weeks before Christmas, South Tyrol's small cities radiate a very special flair. From the nearby mountain peaks the snow is already flashing down into the valley and the slopes are ready for the first ski swings. South Tyrol's cities offer the ideal mix for sports enthusiasts, relaxed connoisseurs and culture lovers in the pre-Christmas season. An undisputed highlight of the period are the five original South Tyrolean Christmas markets in Bolzano, Merano, Bressanone, Brunico and Vipiteno.
The markets of Bolzano, Bressanone, Brunico and Vipiteno can be reached from the Tratterhof within a maximum of 40 minutes by car, train or bus.
Here local handicrafts meet traditional Christmas bakery and South Tyrolean delicacies, urban lifestyle meets old handicrafts, light cuisine meets alpine flair, tradition and customs meet contemporary offerings.
On the ice rink the children shoot their first pirouettes and concerts and readings prepare for the contemplative time even during the week. Let yourself be enchanted by the Christmas atmosphere of the South Tyrolean cities.
