Merano Christmas Market
Festive atmosphere in Merano from November 24 to January 6.
From November 24, 2017, to January 6, 2018, Merano hosts a series of events and activities for the Merano Christmas Market.
The market fills the town centre with a magical atmosphere that enchants thousands of visitors every year. Children and their families can enjoy the ice skating rink in Terme Square, walk through the town’s historic centre, enjoy Christmas concerts, and so much more.
Part of the program is specifically dedicated to children: pony rides, do-it-yourself workshops, and many other activities. During the Parade in honour of Saint Nicholas, Patron Saint of Merano – well-behaved kids are given gifts.
Visitors can also buy handcrafted objects made by South Tyrolean artisans, or take part in workshops to learn how to sew felt or make Christmas wreaths.
The big five South Tyrol Christmas Markets have been awarded the “Green Event” certification because of their eco-friendly principles and their use of regional products.
Decorations are made by local primary school students, workshops and gardeners from South Tyrol.
