Christmas markets

December has begun and so has the countdown for Christmas holidays.
The atmosphere has changed and everybody is looking forward joyous celebrations.
Val Gardena usually looks like a Christmas scenery, with its houses covered with snow and its enchanting landscapes, but it becomes something really magical in this period.
It’s a view you can’t absolutely miss!
Several events are held in the Christmas period, including the Christmas markets that take place every year in Santa Cristina, one of the three “gems” of Val Gardena, together with Ortisei and Selva Gardena (where the Tyrol Hotel is located).
A multitude of peculiar wooden houses, a place where you can find lots of beautiful things: artisanal products, nativity figures carved out of wood, Christmas decorations, glass creations, hand-woven items, toys, candles, books and specialties typical of South Tyrol and Ladin culture.

You can experience the local tradition and taste countless delicacies, including mulled wine, Christmas sweets with cinnamon, strudels and sausages. Moreover, you can find original items that you can buy as a souvenir or to make a gift to your loved ones.


Everything is gladdened by the enjoyable music performed by the members of the Music School of Val Gardena.
You can also admire the Christmas symbols par excellence: a big tree at the foot of the Langkofel (Sassolungo) and the biggest Nativity Scene in the world, carved out of wood.
The event will take place every day from 4 to 30 December, in general from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm.
It’s a special occasion to live moments of joy, relax and tranquillity in a charming place, which has nothing to do with the chaotic markets you’re used to.
Snow, winter temperature, lights, colours, sounds, smells: these special ingredients will allow you to “prepare” an unforgettable experience, full of emotions, in one of the most suggestive places you can visit during the Christmas period.
Why don’t you book your family holiday in the breathtaking scenery of the Dolomites?
We’ll be glad to welcome you to the Tyrol Hotel and offer you a dream experience, an exclusive service and all of the comforts!
