Christmas in South Tyrol

Winter holidays at the Hotel Zirm on Plan de Corones/Kronplatz

Normally the traditional Christmas market in Brunico/Bruneck in South Tyrol opens in late November. Its small wooden houses and stands are decorated with loving care, the trees are illuminated with strings of lights and the Dolomites are covered with a thick blanket of snow. Christmassy smells and holiday mood are in the air. Here you can have a wonderful time far away from hustle and bustle and enjoy a quiet and contemplative advent.

Unfortunately the Christmas markets in South Tyrol will not take place this year due to the health emergency COVID-19. But we are already looking forward to invite you to the South Tyrolean Christmas markets next year.

Nevertheless a vacation in the Zirm at Christmas time is ALWAYS worthwhile!

Silent Night, Holy Night

Christmas Eve at our Hotel Zirm

The custom of the Christmas tree decorated with colourful baubles and candles is about 400 years old. At Christmas Eve, the Christ child brings presents for everyone and puts them under the Christmas tree. We listen to Christmas stories, sing carols, eat Christmas biscuits and drink some warm tea or punch.

Christmas Day is a leisurely day and we usually stay with our families and friends. In the evening, soft Christmas carols are provided as background to a sumptuous Christmas dinner at our Hotel Zirm. Afterwards we stroll together through the snow and go to Christmas mass in the small church of the village.
