Bolzano Christmas Market

Every year, the old town is venue for “A Magic Christmas at Bolzano Bozen”, one of the most traditional Christmas Markets of Italy.

Chains of light, festoons, the sweet flavour of cinnamon and cookies in the air, solemn Christmas carols all over - this is how the centre of Bolzano presents itself in Christmas time. Every year from the end of November to January 6th, the Walther Square is venue for a special Christmas Market: Some 40 decorated market booths attract people from near and far. There were twice as much, but the number has been reduced in order to guarantee the social distancing.

Local artisans offer their products, and for this reason it is a perfect place to look for Christmas presents, such as home-made candles, glass balls or wood-carved sculptures. Of course there are also local delicacies, and you absolutely have to taste hot apple juice as well as mulled wine, which is essential in every visit of the Christmas Market!

However, in the course of time many little markets have been added around the Piazza Walther square under the motto "A Magic Christmas at Bolzano Bozen", such as the little Charity Market, the Handicraft Exhibition, and the Christmas Park near the station. Furthermore, last winter the restructured Palais Campofranco has been reopened, another special place for Christmas magic.
