• Sarntal Valley Alpine Advent

Alpine Advent Sarntal Valley, South Tyrol

Quiet moments during the advent season

Every year, those who organise the “Alpenadvent” (Alpine Advent) in Val Sarentino/Sarntal Valley look to create a special and tranquil Christmas market with numerous fringe events.

20 beautifully decorated wooden booths offer unique and traditional hand-crafted wares, made by local people. Amongst other things, these wares are made of wood, leather, wool or Sarntal mountain pine. Visitors can also buy local honey and cheeses. The market also includes various food and drinks booths, where visitors can try home-made “Krapfen” (doughnuts), “Striezel” (sweet plaited bread), rye bread and more... A variety of bands and choirs provides background Christmas music, and there is also a live workshop and an extensive programme of events for children.

Digital Sarntal Valley Alpine Advent 2020
Even though the Corona pandemic has put a stop to the execution of this year's edition of the Sarntal Valley Alpine Advent, this event is an indispensable part of life in Sarntal Valley in view of the best time of the year. And yet, this year is different: this year the Sarntal Valley Alpine Advent is being held digitally. You can order and buy traditional and quality Sarntal Valley products online, which can be delivered or collected. The village of Sarnthein itself will be decently decorated for Christmas, so that despite the current crisis, a Christmassy and positive atmosphere is created.
