Advent in GlurnsOur editorial team always tries to provide detailed and accurate information, but it is possible that events undergo changes that we are unable to update in real time. Exact details on dates, times and programmes can be obtained directly from the organiser.
In South Tyrol’s smallest town, romantics will be totally satisfied, because in the second week in December there takes place the traditional Christmas fair "Advent in Glurns".
In contrast to many other Christmas markets, it last not several weeks, but it is limited to the long weekend around 8 December. Nevertheless – or just therefore – it is considered to be full of atmosphere and every year it attracts visitors from all over the region.
Young and old Christmas fans can stroll through the town centre, take a look at the colourful stands, hear well-known Christmas songs and enjoy the smell of sweet biscuits, gingerbread and mulled wine coming from the gastronomic stalls.
