The alleys of Sarentino are regularly filled on Advent weekends with a Living Workshop and 20 wooden stalls with traditional handmade products made in Sarentino. These include those with quill embroidery as well as Klöckeln, an old Advent custom in the valley, which is shown every Thursday evening during Advent and takes you on a journey through time. Delicious treats for the palate are offered by the gastronomic stalls, such as a hot mulled wine on a cold winter night or delicious "Sarner Striezl" (biscuits made from yeast dough) with bacon.
In addition, there are carriage rides, a procession of shepherds, music and a children's programme that makes the reflective time before Christmas in the Val Sarentino valley so special. The "Alpenadvent Sarntal" (Sarntal Valley Alpine Advent) provides a quieter contrast to the Christmas Market in Bolzano, which is only 20 km away. In the Rohrerhaus, the small museum in an old farmhouse, the special exhibition "Olls vi Hond gmocht" (Everything made by hand) is on display. Those who want to look around in the shops in Sarentino afterwards can collect stars and win.
