Christmas in Castelrotto
During the weekends before Christmas opens the highest Christmas market of South Tyrol on the market square in Castelrotto. While you go through the little ways of the nice market, you have the possibility to admire good deeds from our artisans. Our local peasants offer you delicious self-made sweets, as cookies, Christmas “Stollen” and mulled wine. We are sure that you can find your perfect Christmas present on the market, while the music band Kastelruther Spatzen are giving a Christmas concert.
The second week of January is every year a special one, because there takes place the farmers marriage.
