A little bit of history about Christmas Markets

The first edition of the Christmas Market dates back to 1994, when the town in the trentino region of middle europe hosted only 12 houses, where they were exposed to items of quality craftsmanship suitable for the whole family, ideal as christmas gifts.

The Christmas Market has its origins in the union between the German tradition and the Italian one. Being the meeting point between the two european cultures, Trento has absorbed the traditions of both cultures.

In particular, the Markets of St. Nicholas, better known as Santa Klaus, are a German tradition dating back to the FOURTEENTH century when this was the only occasion during the whole year to buy christmas decorations.

Over the years, the Christmas Markets of Trento have gained more and more value, to become today one of the events of major importance to the city of Trento and not only.

A pleasant stay.

"I came back yesterday from a small snow holiday with my family after 10 years of inactivity on the skies due to the birth of my daughters. Mattia and his teammate have packed us an all-inclusive 4-day ad-hoc package at a very affordable price. The structure works perfectly, sympathy and availability are the common denominator of all the staff: from John in the room assisted by his very attentive colleague especially for the little ones, the girls of the animation Sisa, Marty and the "crazy" accompanying you Even on the slopes. In the package you get a free ski bus card (in 15 minutes on the slopes) and for the attractions of Trento including the Muse. At the hotel there is a swimming pool with sauna and Turkish bath available for guests. Being valued guests on Valentine's Day, they reserved for their parents a beautiful dinner, while for children there was a party organized by the girls of the animation. The same animators every night have entertained us with fun games involving all the families there, and this too is not taken for granted! At the end of the holiday, small children were given a nice snack basket. What to add, Hotel to recommend, and we will be back soon!"

We will be back

"We stayed last week at this hotel. We had a very spacious quadruple, new bathroom, clean room. As soon as she entered the room she soon felt the smell of bleach ... I love her because she knows me the clean way. The hotel is comfortable well organized right in front of the bus stop and 100 mt from the chairlift. The staff are nice, all young and smiling kids ... then there are three crazy animations that are just great ... very very nice and not overpriced. The only flaw in this hotel is the caldon in the room, where we solved simply by closing the thermosiphone. I want to thank all the staff because they are really professionals ... ..but I forgot to do the diet before I went to eat well and let me try out all the hams prepared by the chefs. See you soon. Alessandra Anoroso of Arezzo !!"

Excellent stay

"It is a very comfortable and well-located structure logistical next to the Vaneze ski lifts. In front of the hotel there is a bus stop (free of charge) to reach Vason facilities within 10 minutes. Very convenient and convenient also the rental of equipment right in front of the hotel. Our room (201) was very clean and well-heated, like the rest of the hotel which seems to have been recently renovated (our bathroom was brand new). We opted for half board arrangements and we had a great time. Ample buffet of appetizers and vegetables in addition to the choice of three different menus every day. Fresh and well cooked food in keeping with the tradition of Trentino: we enjoyed canederli, pappardelle to hare, roe deer and various game. Sweet and fresh fruit. Menus also tailored for children. Water, wine (white or red) and soft drinks at will. Even for the very satisfied breakfast with a very wide selection of sweet and salty. All staff were available and professional, from receptionists to animation, passing for chefs and waiters who discreetly asked us if we needed anything else. "

Monte Bondone equals Hotel Zodiaco

"With my husband and our 7 year old boy we stayed x 4 nights from 19 to 23 February at this hotel with half board formula, skipass and ski equipment and the price / quality ratio is really good. Breakfast is varied and plentiful while dinner has great starters with first and second choice of 3 alternatives ... all very good. Our room was clean, nice and the new bathroom. If you are skiers you can take the chairlift near the hotel otherwise the first one can take the bus free of charge before the hotel which in 10 minutes leads directly to the ski school. The spa is located in the residence, but the costumes and slippers are enough and relaxation is guaranteed. Animation girls are fabulous and ingenious every day to do something fun x the little ones but also the big ones. A hotel certainly to recommend x families with kids and to come back to find. Thanks to all the staff x kindness and courtesy reserved. Beautiful vacation !!!! "
