Magic Advent in Trentino 2019-20
The countdown for the arrival of Christmas in Trentino has begun, here an article dedicated to Ossana, the village of the 1000 cribs in Val di Sole and to the Christmas Markets in Trentino South Tyrol to provide you with some suggestions and useful hints on how to organize your holiday during the Advent period in Trentino and what events you can't miss!
1. Val di Sole and the 1000 Cribs of Ossana
- Where is it? Ossana historical center and Castel San Michele
- When is it? from 29 November 2019 to 6 January 2020 from 10.00 to 22.00
- What is it? Nearly 1000 cribs and one great emotion: markets, tastings, music
From 29 November 2019 to 06 January 2020, experience the magic of Christmas with us at the Chalet Alpenrose in Val di Sole by visiting the 1000 craft cribs set up along the most characteristic shrouds of the village Ossana.
Have you ever thought about an entire vacation or just a weekend dedicated to Christmas Nativity scenes?
1000 craft cribs, exclusive Christmas concerts, Christmas markets and of course tastings of typical Trentino dishes and mulled wine are waiting for you. We too are bewitched by the glitter of the suggestive little houses of the Cribs and by the beautiful Christmas tree set up at the foot of the Castel San Michele, so with pleasure we accompany you personally to visit the Cribs.
2. Best wishes from the Trento Christmas Market
From 23 November 2019 to 6 January 2020 in Piazza Fiera and in Piazza Cesare Battisti in the historic center of Trento, you can visit the Trento Christmas markets. Here you will have the opportunity to taste the delicious Christmas sweets made in Trentino and to sip the "melabrulè" made with apples rather than wine at the characteristic lit houses.
Reaching the Christmas Market in Trento from the Chalet Alpenrose is really easy! In fact, thanks to the Trentino Guest Card that you will receive when on arrival at the Hotel, you can use the Dolomiti Express panoramic train free of charge, which from Mezzana (about 10 minutes by car from the Chalet) reaches the heart of the city of Trento, avoiding absurd queues to search for parking , more comfortable, free and green than that just can't be done!
3. Merano Christmas Markets
If one day during your Christmas holiday in Val di Sole you feel like taking a quaint trip to South Tyrol, we suggest you visit the Merano Christmas Market. Along the "Promenade", the characteristic little wooden houses are set up. Absolutely recommended is a stop at the "Schlossbeck", a historic half-timbered "Backhaus" with a water mill that invites you to watch the preparation of the "Dinnede" features revisited small pizzas based on Speck and potatoes cooked and baked at the time ... And then a visit to the Markets you can have fun on the ice rink set up for the occasion in Piazza Terme.
How to reach the Merano Christmas markets from the Chalet Alpenrose in an easy but above all fast way avoiding the motorway? Simple, through the Val di Non to the Passo delle Palade which will take you straight to Lana, from there to the heart of the Markets are only 15 minutes by car!
Markets are open from November 29th 2019 to January 6th 2020 special times and official links
