The South Tyrol Christmas Markets are certified as a Green Event

Green Events are planned, organized and carried out in accordance with unvironmentally friendly criteria.

The other essential factors are regional value creation, efficiency use of resources, waste management, mobility and social responsibility.

The five Original South Tyrol Christmas Markets are set apart by their authenticity and naturalness. From 2014, the Christmas Markets along the five-star route shine under a green star. In cooperation with the Ökoinstitut Südtirol, work is being done to make the Advent period in South Tyrol ecological and sustainable, and to transform the Original South Tyrol Christmas Markets into a certified Green Event. Significant factors include the sparing utilization of resources, environmentally friendly mobility, waste management and the use of regional and seasonal products.

You can contribute protecting the environment by traveling to the Christmas Markets in an eco-friendly way and by using the Mobilcard to visit the Markets. More on www.mobilcard.info.
