You can experience the Christmastime in Val Gardena at:

-the Christmas village, from 1st December to 6th January in Ortisei. Listen to Christmas carols, be guided to the doors of bakeries and stalls by the sweet smell of Christmas cookies wafting through the village, kneel and ever so lightly touch the wood carved nativity scene figures, gaze in wonder at the advent decorations peppering the village and the landscape covered in snow

-the Original Val Gardena Christmas Market, from 1nd December to 30th December in S. Cristina.
The range of goods on offer includes typical products like woodcarved cribs, angels, toys, books, candles, ceramic, honey, Christmas biscuits, mulled wine and last but not least you can taste the traditional culinary delights.

-the "Mountain Christmas", from the 7th of December to the 7th of January in Selva Val Gardena.
This Christmas in Selva, an old fashioned cable car of miniature wooden cabins, shining with fairy lights, can be found hanging above a magical Christmas village. A typical mountain hamlet will be brought to life with traditional huts of stone and rustic wood, like those of times gone by.
