Christmas market at Bressanone/Brixen

We live Tradition. The Bressanone Christmas Market has been held for over 30 years.

In the weeks before Christmas, you can feel a very special flair in Brixen. Snow glistens from the surrounding mountain peaks into the valley and the pistes on the local mountain Plose are also ready for the first ski turns.

When it slowly gets darker, you can no longer escape the Christmas atmosphere in Brixen. The atmospheric lights in the streets of the town and the decorated. The smell of mulled wine made from regional ingredients, warm soup and biscuits brings locals and guests to the cathedral Square of Brixen.

From 24.11.2023 – 06.01.2024 at Italy's oldest Christmas Market you can find products that were mainly made or finished in South Tyrol. Whether it's individual gift ideas for friends and family or simply a cosy get-together with homemade mulled wines, dumpling variations or sweets. At the Brixen Christmas Market you can simply enjoy the contemplative Christmas atmosphere surrounded by the traditional wooden huts, the festively decorated trees and the cathedral chapter.
