Christmas in South Tyrol
When winter creeps over the country in all its fairy-tale glory, you’ll also feel the magic of Christmas in South Tyrol at Chalet Grumer. Outdoors, enjoy the views over the snow-covered valleys, go on walks to breathe in the fresh mountain air and visit the romantic Christmas market in Bolzano. There’s lots of fun to be had in the snow or you can simply relax on your winter holiday in the warm, cosy and traditionally-furnished interior of Chalet Grumer.
Time for peace and comfort
The pre-Christmas season is perfect for taking a deep breath, pausing for thought and preparing for a wonderful Christmas.
Make yourself at home in our comfortable living room. Browse the books in our little library or play a game of chess in the cosy snug. Soak up the heat from the tiled stove and listen to the fire crackling. Treat yourself to a cup of hot chocolate or a refreshing 5 o'clock afternoon cup of tea served with homemade Christmas biscuits & gingerbread.
A wellness winter heaven
Spend relaxing holidays amidst the natural setting of our spa & wellness oasis and totally pamper yourself in the sauna area with special Christmas treatments.
The heated indoor activity pool with a hydro-flow system is great for a swimming and enjoying a relaxing water massage. Our compact sports room is ideal for additional training sessions during the Advent season. You can exercise just as you please, cycle and train with weights or use the range of Technogym equipment. Indulge in pure relaxation in the meditative alpine relaxation room. The comfortable loungers are made of smooth wood and the warm atmosphere and delicate scent of pine wood help to ease stress and tension. The Vital bar always has teas and refreshing drinks for you to enjoy, as well as healthy little snacks. You’ll also find interesting reading material in this little pamper room.
Should you wish to avoid the stress of choosing a present during your winter holiday in South Tyrol, we can help you by providing a bespoke voucher.

The Christmas market in Bolzano
The period leading up to a Christmas is ideal for a trip to the Christmas market in Bolzano. The scents of fresh pastries such as apple strudel, Funnel cake, or Christmas biscuits will wash over you as you sip delicious apple punch and various kinds of mulled wine. Take a leisurely stroll around the many market stalls and through the brightly-lit little streets in the old town and gaze in awe at the many South Tyrolean sights, while listening to Christmas carols in the background.
Then, why not benefit from the special first-hand experience of seeing how the talented craftsmen create their well-known Val Gardena wood carvings? It’s well worth popping over to see the traditional biblical crib close to this open-air workshop. This is great for a nice holiday photo next to the tall colourfully-decorated Christmas tree. Also, muse at the many Christmas concerts that take place in or close to Bolzano’s Christmas market.
There’s certainly no shortage of South Tyrolean traditions and customs during the Advent season. For example, on the 5th and 6th of December, St. Nicholas visits the city’s Christmas market to spread seasonal good tidings and hand out little gifts. However, watch out for his devilish companion, Krampus. This vividly-dressed character, locally known as "Toifl", wears scary masks and loves to play devilish tricks, swinging his chain with fiery red eyes.
As a romantic alternative to the Krampuslauf when the devil runs through the streets with his masks, you can take a carriage ride through the old town of Bolzano or even through the enchanting snowy landscape of the Renon. Take the Rittner Bahndl, a little train that goes from one Christmas market on the mountain to the next. Anyone looking to buy a nice little Christmas gift from South Tyrol for their loved one will find that the pretty Christmas tree baubles made by the internationally-acclaimed South Tyrolean artist, Marcello Jori, are ideal. They’re perfect as a souvenir of your Christmas in Italy.
