Bolzano is amazing, we arrived by train from Verona and you’re immediately in the heart of Bolzano.. first Christmas market in just 5 minutes walk with plenty of stalls you want to buy something from each and every one of them, then you walk further like 10 minutes and you’re in Bolzano Center in the famous Piazza Walther with another massive Christmas market and surrounded by cafeterias, restaurants, and plenty of shopping outlets you can immagine ... for those who love culture there is plenty to see as well, Italia is full of culture.... Don’t miss a ride with horses and carriage around the heart of the city Centre from Piazza Walther it cost us €9 per person for 15 min around but it’s worth the money because you discover more shopping attractions and you want to visit for sure... Than after couple of hours in Centre you must go to see Renon ( sopra Bolzano ) it’s heaven ♥️ To arrive to Renon from Centre you must walk back to Bolzano train station where we started and walk for about 600 metres to the right hand side when exiting train station and find a large building you cannot miss all covered with glass and it’s the cable car station that takes you to Renon with cheap fare €12 per person and even include a train ride around Renon to take you up with breath taking views and then taste some street food like goulash with some wine or beer or Vin Brune and enjoy the amazing views of the mountains... we just fell in love with the place .... it’s a must see and be ♥️

I have been to most of the German and Austrian markets. While those in the larger cities may have more booths, I would put this market's offerings right up near the top in the breadth of items. The items for sale were unique to the area, primarily locally made and covered the gamut from nativity figurines to food, ornaments to wool slippers, leather to glasswork, and more. The prices were very reasonable, and the vendors friendly. Lots of different types of food and beverage are available as well. On the night of December 23rd, carolers sang for about 30 minutes, and it made the season come alive. There is a section of the market located near the train station designated just for children. There are a Ferris wheel and a carousel plus a few more family-friendly activities. This area closes about the same time as the main market area. You do not need to spend more than a few hours to cover the market but it is worth a detour from the better known spots. I am so glad that we decided to spend a night here on our way from Milano to Verona! If you do not want to spend the night, you could do this as a daytrip from Milan Verona, or even Venice. Easy to get here on the train and walk to the Piazza Walther for the market.

A compact but busy Christmas market with many food stalls offering a variety of tasty Christmas fare and mulled wine. Other stalls were interesting but it was a case of 4 stalls 10 times. A wonderful overall experience however with all the lights and a great atmosphere. Shortage of public loos was a bit of a problem.

Back to Europe after more than 10 years, we have got the opportunity to visit this beautifull Christmas market. Actually I didn't find many things to buy here that I wouldn't have found in other place but I really have got the feelings of Christmas. Walking throu the City is a pleasure even with the festivities crowd. The white Alps around Bolzano is a fantastic scenario that helps to immerse in the Christmas atmosphere. If you are near by, it is worth a visit!
