Christmas markets in the most suggestive destinations of the Alps

The most popular Christmas markets are exactly those of the Alpine destinations. From the one in the archeological area of the Roman Theatre in Aosta to the Christmas market in Cortina d’Ampezzo in the Bellunese Dolomites, passing through Valtellina with the markets of Albosaggia, near Sondrio, and Livigno. Among the most popular ones, there are the Christmas markets of Trento, for the Trentino region, and Meran, Sterzing, Brixen, Bruneck... for South Tyrol. However, almost all the mountain destinations have their own Christmas market. Tourists love walking through the small wooden houses in search of a gift among handcrafted products and those of the local culinary traditions, decorations for the nativity scene or the Christmas tree. It is often the first holiday in the skiing destinations, during the Conception bank holiday or at the Advent weekends, that offers you the chance to experience these pre-Christmas atmospheres, softened by the snow and marked by decorations, lights, music, traditional sweets and mulled wine.
