Unique experiences in Val Gardena

In Val Gardena a range of interesting events await you. Discover the local traditions up close and immerse yourself in the Ladin way of life!

Every year at Christmas time the small but perfectly formed Christkindl Market takes place in St. Christina. Beautifully decorated wooden huts and wonderful Christmas carols really put you in the festive spirit. Traditional handicrafts such as nativity figures, Christmas tree decorations, glass and ceramic items, embroidery and candles can be bought and there is plenty to eat and drink including Christmas biscuits and cakes and of course mulled wine.

The snow sculpture competition in Selva Gardena is also an unforgettable experience. Every year the Val Gardena sculptors create fantastic statues out on blocks of snow which are then judged by a jury. This event is open for three days at the end of December. The fascinating sculptures turn the centre of Selva Gardena into a magical winter wonderland!

Val Gardena is famous for its wood carving and is also known as the birthplace of this art form. A showcase of this traditional local art is the Galaria UNIKA in Ortisei where an impressive range of sculptures and pictures can be viewed and purchased. It is free to watch the artists at work as well as to attend events at the gallery.
