Woodcarving

The tradition of woodcarving in the Val Gardena is many centuries old.

Mainly Christian figures such as nativity scenes are carved during winter time in the Val Gardena. We recommend visiting the larger than life-sized Christmas crib in Santa Cristina in the Gardena valley, one the largest wood-carved nativity scenes in the world. It is open all-the-year.

Also other valleys in South Tyrol have an important woodcarving tradition. In the Tures and Aurina valleys beautiful masks are carved. The laboratories or small shops are worth a visit and give you the opportunity to have a closer look at this traditional handicraft!
