"The original Christmas markets of South Tyrol"
When the fire crackles in the fire place, the peaks of the mountains show the first snow and the days become shorter, then it's time for Advent in South Tyrol. The skilfully carved cribs are placed in the living rooms, decorated with moss and pine twigs. The pine twigs, illuminated by light garlands, show the way to the original Christmas markets of South Tyrol.
