In Lana the contemplative Advent season creates a true Christmas atmosphere. This year, once again a number of unique Advent experiences are on offer: a glitter workshop and pony rides for children, Sterntaler girls in costume and much more. Local choirs and music ensembles perform music on different days.
The Sterntaler Christmas Market in Lana – an atmosphere like once upon a time in the old days
Over all four weekends of the Advent season, the festively decorated, glittering Christmas stands and supporting program of the Sterntaler Christmas Market create a contemplative and cozy atmosphere in the center of Lana. Market stalls invite visitors to sample the local handicrafts and taste traditional South Tyrolean specialties, while local ensembles and choirs offer seasonal musical accompaniment. Highlights for families include pony rides and a sheep enclosure under the stars as well as a glitter workshop in the historic Rosengarten residence.
: The Christmas decorations for the trees in the pedestrian zone have been redesigned this year: stars made of natural wood in various forms and patterns, designed by Karl Heinz Steiner from Curon/Graun in the Vinschgau Valley, will replace the red glass balls which have long contributed to the Advent atmosphere.
The Sterntaler Girls will be selling tickets for the Sterntaler Lottery again this year. Tempting prizes await the winners – try your luck! Part of the proceeds will be donated to needy local families through the "Stille Hilfe" organization.
