It is the new attraction of the Bolzano Christmas market.
In the tourist destinations of South Tyrol, the Christmas markets have opened, where artisan craftsmen sell handmade decorations.
The gastronomic stands offer the renowned Speck and the typical Schüttelbrot, as well as jams produced by farmers in their traditional farmsteads in the most picturesque valleys.
This year’s highlight in Bolzano is the Ferris wheel. It might not be as tall as the ones in other European cities, but it offers an impressive view of Bolzano by night. The lights of the Christmas market and the illuminated city make adults and especially children dream.
After seeing the Bolzano market yesterday. Curiosity brought the concierge to Merano. What the Ferris wheel is for Bolzano, the skating rink is for Merano. The ice rink is both something for experienced skaters and aspiring ones. Maybe one of them might become the next Caroline Kostner?
A day trip to southern Bavaria. The picturesque city of Mittenwald is known for its colourful houses, its longstanding history of violin-craftmanship and the St. Peter and Paul church built in the 18th century, with its beautiful frescos.
