On the weekends and festive days in Advent, there is a special Christmas atmosphere in the centre of Caldaro.
Small wooden stalls stand on the central market square of Caldaro and in the surrounding alleys, Christmas music is played and lights illuminate the wine village. It is the time when a small Christmas market invites people to take a stroll at the weekends. A large fir tree decorated with stars and lights stands in the middle of the market square, and burning candles form a fiery circle on the village fountain.
Horses and ponies await little visitors for a short ride, while a horse-drawn carriage ride is on the programme for families. Activities and events such as "Letters to the Christ Child" or the Fairy Tale Alley with reading sessions await the little guests.
The one or other highlight must not be missed either, for example in recent years the exhibition of Krampus Masks in the rooms of the former Le Carceri Prison in Caldaro, today a gallery. Christmas in Caldaro takes place from Friday to Sunday in Advent, and a glass of one of the exquisite Caldaro wines should of course not be missed!
