 Let yourself be enchanted by the pre-Christmas season in Trentino! A visit to a beautiful Trentino Christmas market, listening to choral songs in a church and a nativity scene exhibition with mulled wine and delicious sweets creates a Christmas atmosphere. 

Day 1:   Arrival Val di Sole

Today you arrive in the Val di Sole area. The Val di Sole is located in the northwest of Trentino, in the extreme north of the Italian peninsula. Located on the sunny side of the Central Alps, on the border with Austria and Switzerland, it is easily accessible from all of Northern Europe. The Val di Sole is combined with the two side valleys Val di Peio and Val di Rabbi to a tourist association and has different landscapes and a variety of economic-touristic structures. The great respect for the environment and its care unite these three valleys and the two nature reserves of the Stilfserjoch National Park, the largest in the Alps and the Adamello-Brenta Nature Park bear witness to its primary importance. After arrival you will move into your hotel and have dinner. 

Day 2:   Concert  Bergchor

Take the electric train from Male to Trento today. Here you are expected by a guide. During a city tour you will see the sights of the council town. At the Christmas market with music and mulled wine you will get into the Christmas spirit. In the evening you will attend a concert by a Trentino mountain choir in a church in Val di Sole. Let yourself be enchanted by the Christmas sounds. The choirs will provide a contemplative atmosphere and prepare you for the most beautiful days of the year. Listen to the pleasant voices and enjoy the atmosphere.

Day 3: Nativity scene exhibition

Today you drive to the crib exhibition, where you can admire the approx. 100 cribs on display. At the stands you can taste Christmas specialities from Trentino. The village of Ossana can boast a long tradition in the construction of artisan nativity scenes. For more than 10 years, the inhabitants of Ossana, including schools and clubs, have been preparing for Christmas all year round. With a lot of patience and creativity, all types and dimensions of nativity scenes are created. The works of art are then placed all over the place, some of them are hidden and have to be found. During a romantic walk through the typical alleys of the village you have the opportunity to admire the more than 100 precious nativity scenes. Search for unique cribs made from a variety of materials such as fabric, wood, seeds and maize leaves. The nativity scenes are atmospherically illuminated with old oil lamps. Your walk will be accompanied musically by the sounds of the crystal harmonica. Several short glass harmonica concerts take place in the church of S. Vigilio in Ossana.
