Very special days in Brixen with Christmas in the Alps
The pre-Christmas period in Brixen is perfect for some very special days in this region. The Christmas market on Brixen’s cathedral square is full of sweet scents and thousands lights. And there is even more.
For all those who wish to experience nature with all their senses, there is the guided hike Christmas in the Alps that takes them up on the mountain and right in the heart of winter. Christmas in the Alps is a guided hike on the Plose that is offered on the Saturdays before Christmas.
Take the gondola lift to the top station and come with our guide along the fairy tale winter trail leading along 2,5 km from the top station of the gondola lift to the Rossalm, on the foot of the majestic Dolomites. Suggestive sculptures in the snow covered landscape, small installations and music will make it a very special experience. Enter into the cosy, warm and scented Stuben and enjoy the great feeling of being welcome.
The guided excursions take place on:

Start is at 3 PM from the top station of the gondola lift. The way leads you along 2,5 km to the Rossalm and back. The return is programmed for 7 PM. Once at the bottom station of the gondola lift you may take the bus to Brixen.
