Every December, a full-scale Advent Festival takes place inside the historic walls of Tyrol Castle. The pre-Christmas events are held in the courtyard and the Knights’ Hall, packed with demonstrations of ancient crafts such as felting, lathing, spinning wool, pottery, and jewellery, with high quality handicrafts also for sale.
Typical Tyrolean delicacies, Christmas cookies and hot drinks may be sampled at the numerous stands to the accompaniment of local bands and choirs. An open fire helps to create a congenial atmosphere, with a children’s entertainment program.
From late November to 6th January, the annual Merano and Bolzano Christmas Markets are also easily reached from Tirolo.
