The Merano Christmas Market is more than just an event: it is an experience for all the senses. This Christmas market offers delicious South Tyrolean food, traditional handicraft, folkloristic elements and exciting new ideas.
The Merano Christmas Market is held on Merano’s main squares and covers most of the town center. Most of the market stalls are located on the scenic Passer Promenade. An ice-skating rink and a live manger are but some of the attractions awaiting families at Piazza Terme. Visitors can enjoy a fabulous menu inside the colorful, oversized Christmas balls or Kugln adorning Piazza Terme, while games and activities for children are organized at Piazza della Rena, primarily in the wooden house of mascot Goldy.
South Tyrol’s traditional handicraft is a vital sector of the local economy, its unique craftsmanship and quality accounting for its undiminished popularity. The Stube des Handwerks is a showcase of South Tyrol’s handicraft and traditional art.
Behind the magical atmosphere, the bright colors and the coziness of the Merano Christmas Market, lies a firm commitment to sustainability, which was rewarded last year with the prestigious GreenEvent certification. Handicraft lessons for children involving the use of recycled materials aim to increase awareness among young visitors of the need for recycling.
