Medieval Christmas in Chiusa

Festive medieval parade on Saturday, November 28, at 4:30pm. Although it is smaller than the South Tyrolean Original Christmas Markets which take place in the two other Valle Isarco/Eisacktal towns such as Bressanone/Brixen and Vipiteno/Sterzing, the Medieval Christmas Market in Chiusa still offers a special program and attracts visitors to the centre of this small artists’ town at the foot of the Sabiona Abbey.

Christmas Market in Ortisei

Christmas is here and there’s no place like Ortisei to truly experience this merry time of the year with all five your senses.
