Bolzano/Bozen, in the South Tyrol, enthusiastically embraces the tradition with a huge Advent Calendar put in the windows of a building down the street from the Christkindl Market. To find it, cross the street and walk to the other end of the Cathedral. Then stop, turn to the right and look up: it’s huge!
Pictures in the windows depict winter and holiday themes from life in the Alps: snow and mountains, Christmas decorations, and — of course — hot apple strudel.
Buon Natale/Fröhliche Weihnachten from Bolzano/Bozen!
