In the squares and on the streets, you can breathe an atmosphere of warmth, you can feel the true and deep value of Christmas. An enchantment made of tradition for the curious who want to cross the threshold of local customs to experience a magical moment.

The mountains around the city are covered with snow and nature lovers will not miss the opportunity to go snowshoeing in the woods, go skiing or have fun sledging!

Not to be missed in Bolzano in winter:

Christmas Market

The scent is that of cinnamon and spices, of mountain wood and home-made cakes, of mulled wine and festively decorated fir trees.

The light is that of the wooden houses all tidy and decorated, the light coming from the Christmas tree and shining in the eyes of the children.

The sweet notes of Christmas carols and cheerful harmony waft through the air.

Tastes reminiscent of Zelten with candied fruit, apple strudel, homemade biscuits.

The warmth in the hands of boiled wool, loden, decorated candles, a steaming cup in the company of friends.

The Christmas Market is the most eagerly awaited event of the year.


Winter Sport


Aim high! Towards the mountain huts, towards the summit cross, towards the start of the slopes. And look out over the horizon, beyond the sharp ridges and down into the valley. Listening to the call of nature in the Dolomites while skiing on fresh snow. Enjoy tobogganing, cross-country skiing or snowboarding! And between one adventure and another, stop to admire the landscape, look inside yourself and refresh yourself in a mountain hut. Because on the alpine pastures and in the mountain huts in Obereggen in Val d'Ega you feel like you're one step away from heaven! And the Latemar never ceases to offer new adventures.

Rittner Horn

Wonderful landscape of endless snow-covered spaces.

St. Martin (Reinswald)

Sun-kissed skiing in the Val Sarentino ski area, a small paradise for families and nature lovers. Ski slopes, moonlight tobogganing, snowshoeing, ski touring and open alpine huts to warm up with hot food and drinks. Pure fun for young and old!
