Welcome to the Brunico Christmas market
29.11.2019 – 06.01.2020
Music fills the hearts more than thousands of words. For this reason, Christmas melodies and tunes will be at the heart of this year’s Brunico Christmas Market. At Brunico’s Tuneful Christmas in the heart of the historic centre of Brunico an idyllic atmosphere awaits you with a variety of small choirs, singing groups and wind ensembles, as well as a diverse supporting programme. What make the small but perfect Brunico Christmas Market so special are the typical culinary delicacies, the traditional craft displays and the lovingly run stalls with their many gift ideas and high quality products.
Christmas is the festival of joy and family: Singing and playing games has always been an important part of the celebrations in South Tyrolean homes. The symbolic gates to the Tuneful Christmas in Brunico tell of the music that used to be made in Val Pusteria and its side valleys during Advent and Christmas. Experience traditional melodies and Christmas songs and carols that were handed down from generation to generation and still warm the hearts and souls of people today.
