The most magical time of the year

Val Gardena is the place to be if you want to experience that special feeling in the air which comes right before Christmas. Nowhere other can you live the excitement of the advent period like at the heart of the Dolomites. Part of the magic lies in the countless attractions which make Val Gardena just that bit more christmassy.

Ortisei - 01.12.2018 until 06.01.2019

Probably the most exclusive Christimas Village in the Alps invites visitors to tune into the advent time with all five senses. In rustic wooden houses you can find precious regional products, traditional wood carvings as well as gastronomic specialties. Everything is rounded off by a rich program of events that vary daily.

S. Cristina - 01.12.2018 until 30.12.2018

Magic town in S. Cristina is all about fun for the whole family. This year there are 4 enjoyable games for children. Our youngest visitors can have fun throwing snowballs, decorating the Christmas-tree, building wooden snowmen and freeing treasures by ice-carving. The highlight of the market is the alpaca zoo, where the children meet up close with those fascinating animals. According to the slogan you can also meet the mascot Magic Jokki, who helps out the children with the games. There will also be served culinary specialties as white and red mulled wine with cinnamon froth, quality coffee and hot chocolate, as well as different kinds of soups, typical “Krapfen” and much more.

Selva - 07.12.2018 until 06.01.2019

Feel the Christmassy atmosphere also during the „Mountain Christmas“. Discover the 350 m chain of lights with artistic hanging lift cabins made of wood and enjoy the nice combination of ski and Christmas flair in the centre of Selva Val Gardena. You will also find tasting stands with mulled wine and traditional pastries.

The glee and merriment you feel for the most magical time of the year blooms in all its glory in Val Gardena!
