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.

Sweet white week

"Very cozy hotel, beautiful structure and close to one of the chairlifts that allows you to reach the central point of the ski resort located in Vason. Interesting is the Trentino Guest Card, which the hotel offers to its customers, for free use of the bus service, numerous entrances to the most prestigious museums in Trento, and rental equipment arrangements and with the Italian ski school. Tasty cuisine, qualitatively superior to a three star, generous breakfast served buffet style and typically typical of the place, feature is the evening of Trentina. Great service, clean room clean, excellent personal welcome. Pleasant after a day spent in the alpine cold, is the spa, with a hydromassage pool, emotional shower trail, Turkish bath and sauna. Also recommended for families with children, who will be in the company of sweet and fun animators with various activities including the bob race. Too bad that one week seems to have almost flown away, we'll be back soon, and maybe even this summer at the sea in one of the hotels on the Costa holiday, hoping to find the same staff we greet warmly! A Greeting and Thanksgiving for Super Availability and Kindness to Mattia Director. Thank you, see you 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. "

"The good and abundant food and the chance to drink water, drinks and wine is great. The Delfino Equipe animation, Marty, Valentina and Sisa were awesome, the kids were looking forward to returning from the slopes to go to the mini club, practically returning to the room, flying alongside and below. ... a real relax for us parents, believe me. Evenings with baby dance and different activities each night that help to make new friends So let's say .... thanks really to everyone .... a special thanks also to Mattia for her readiness and seriousness and to Teresa the reception is to everything The staff in general. A special thanks also to Valentina, super ski escort, thank you for the beautiful skiing made together. Guys did you really spend a good week! We will meet again next year!"
