South Tyrolean Bread and Strudel Market

In autumn, South Tyrol’s bakeries and confectioneries present their products at the Bread and Strudel Market in Bressanone

It is much more than a market that enchants the town of Bressanone every year for three days in October: the Bread and Strudel Market or Südtiroler Brot- und Strudelmarkt 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 crispy Schüttelbrot, the hearty Val Pusteria bread, the traditional bread of the Val Venosta and other varieties. Bressanone itself features 10 bakeries, and in this special occasion, the smell of freshly baked bread is distributed throughout the whole town.

On the central Cathedral Square, the individual booths present the bread in all possible variations, but also some sweet temptations. They include sweet bread varieties such as Zelten and fruit bread, South Tyrolean Apple Strudel (made of short pastry, puff pastry or laminated dough) as well as other typical desserts. The event, a big family festival, also offers a baking room for children. By the way: Bressanone can easily be reached by means of public transport. The bus station is located a few steps from the old town, furthermore the colourful carriages of the regional trains stop in Bressanone (besides all IC and EC trains on the Verona - Brennero - Innsbruck route).
