Christmas markets

Trentino is a wonderful region during any season, due to its breathtaking nature, but also because of its ancient traditions. The winter season, for example, is able to offer deeper emotions. Every year, the city of Trento lives the magic of Christmas through the beautiful custom of its markets, which attract tourists and visitors from all over Italy and beyond. Within the ancient city walls, old wooden shacks are set up where you can purchase Christmas tree ornaments and nativity scenes that are impossible to find anywhere else, along with handcrafted objects, sweets, and delicious local delicacies. Strudel, the “Mochèna braid”, “polenta brustolada” (grilled polenta) and “vin brulè” (mulled wine) enhance the flavor of a stroll among dancers in costume, Alpine songs, and Christmas choirs.
