Experience an unforgettable Christmas in South Tyrol
Christmas feels like a fairytale when you stroll through South Tyrol's markets. Everywhere you see twinkling lights, Christmas trees and the most delicious smells pass you by. With a warm freshly baked biscuit in your hand and a hot chocolate with whipped cream, you will experience an unforgettable Christmas.

Besides the fact that the Christmas markets are of course great to visit, from the organisation's point of view they are also working to make them more sustainable. The Christmas markets are therefore certified as a Green Event. This means paying attention to value creation of the region, using resources efficiently and ensuring a good waste policy. Markets must also be easily accessible and the organisation's social responsibility is considered. Want to know more about this certificate and the steps markets take to comply? Read more here.
