It is much more than a market that enchants Bressanone (Brixen) every year for three days at the beginning of October: the South Tyrolean Bread and Strudel Market - "Südtiroler Brot- und Strudelmarkt" in German, "Mercato del Pane e dello Strudel" in Italian - is a true festival that tells of daily bread, its history, its different varieties and its ingredients. It is intended to raise awareness of the significance of the Schüttelbrot, the Val Pusteria and Val Venosta bread & Co.
On the central Cathedral Square of Bressanone, the individual booths present the bread in all possible variations, but also some sweet temptations, such as apple and curd strudel. The event, which is planned and hosted as a family festival, also offers a baking room for children and a historical tour into the world of South Tyrolean branded bread varieties.
