Beautiful Christmas markets along the river Rienza
After an exciting day on the slopes, you may visit a Christmas market, enjoy the scent of roasted almond and pastries, hear festive music and buy hand-made products as a gift to take home. San Candido is known for its lovely Christmas market, but also in Sesto and in other villages, popular markets are held during the Advent. Sip a hot cup of mulled wine under the wintery starry sky and simply enjoy your fabulous Christmas vacation in South Tyrol.
Santa Claus is coming!
Of course, Santa Claus and his “Krampus” will come for a visit, too. On December 5th, they come out from their hiding places high up in the mountains and travel through the villages in Alta Pusteria – terrifying figures that herald their arrival with bells and rattling chains. The spectacle is worth seeing and children receive all sorts sweets and goodies. Thus, a Christmas holiday in South Tyrol is always a fantastic idea for the entire family.
