The Sterntaler Christmas Market in Lana

Christmas fairy-tale atmosphere

This year the Sterntaler Christmas Market in Lana looks set to be even more congenial than previously. Starting on 29 November and lasting until 24 December 2024, this annual event over the weekends in Advent is held in the gardens of the historic Capuchin Monastery. Hosting some 24 stalls, this picturesque historical setting will undoubtedly contribute to the special atmosphere. 

Miniature pine trees laden with shiny red baubles and the enchanting decorative illumination adorning the intricate stands, exhibit authentic South Tyrolean handicraft. 

A varied family programme featuring ponies and sheep, include a children's glitter workshop and a small circus for kids to join in. All this and more to the accompaniment of live music, assuring unforgettable Christmas fun for one and all.

Supporting Children with Cardiac Disease

Held over the four weekends in Advent, the Sterntaler Christmas Market in the gardens of the former  Capuchin Monastery in Lana this year promises something extra. Besides the traditional food stands and painstakingly decorated stalls laden with eye-catching wares, the Sterntaler Christmas Market Girl will hold a raffle with the proceeds going to the sick Children's Charity. With tickets costing just € 2 a piece, everyone has a chance of winning!

Part of this year's proceeds will go to the "Kinderherz" Association. By purchasing a ticket, you help to support  this South Tyrolean Children's Charity, who assist families with children suffering from heart disease, and helping to promote their welfare.
