Mulled wine and Christmas markets

The atmosphere of Advent
The atmosphere at Spitalerhof is truly magical during Advent! Our terrace is transformed into a romantic winter wood with the sounds of Advent, crackling fires and mulled wine to warm your heart. It is just like a Christmas market in front of the hotel. But you still won’t want to miss a stop at the famous Christmas markets nearby. Every town boasts its own special magic: Klausen holds a Medieval-themed Christmas market featuring stands selling handmade goods and local specialities and guided tours with traditional night watchmen. The Bolzano Christmas market is Italy’s largest and most impressive, while the Brixen market is particularly festive, with magical light shows and traditional Christmas music in Piazza Duomo, the cathedral square.

Even Merano, Sterzing and Bruneck shine in the magic of their Christmas markets, while Lake Kaltern and Lake Braies offer smaller versions with their own special charm. We would be delighted to give you directions and information on when the markets are open.
