Christmas splendours

It's not only about Christmas markets. At Christmas time, Garda Trentino gets dressed with warm lights and evocative atmosphere to kick off Christmas events and exhibitions for the whole family.

Christmas is just round the corner and the holiday mood grows bigger and bigger, the Christmas markets in Arco and the magical Habsburg atmosphere contaminate the town. The wooden stalls full to the brim with typical products and local handicraft winding around the Collegiata church throw every visitor into the Christmas mood.

Not only in Arco, in Garda Trentino also the Christmas markets in Tenno, one of Italy’s most beautiful hamlets, and in Riva del Garda, with the food and wine Di Gusto in Gusto village, it’s time to party and gifts under the tree! In Tenno, it’s time for the local handicraft made by dabblers and lovers. In Riva instead, a made inTrentino gift for refined palates will be the perfect present for every gormandizer!


There are lots of events that mark out the Advent period until the day of Jesus Christ’s birth.

For all the music lovers, on the 22nd December at 9 pm the Eastern vibes are on stage at the Palameeting in Riva del Garda with the “Dalai Nuur Suggestioni d’Oriente” show, organised by Musica Riva Festival. With overwhelming music and acrobatic choreographies, this show will touch the viewer with a perfect union of Western Christmas and Eastern mysticism. Here you could get the tickets.

the “Dalai Nuur Suggestioni d’Oriente” show, organised by Musica Riva Festival

On the 23rd December from 5.30 to 7 pm it’s the time of the Dancing Fountains show on III Novembre square in Riva del Garda. Two elements, the fire and the water, melt all in one as it was a big love. This show will leave everybody with their jaws dropped, both kids and adults!

Are you Trap lovers?! The rap music lovers know what I’m talking about! For them, the Christmas present is Ghali’s concert at the Palameeting in Riva del Garda on the 16th December from 9.30 pm. Are you ready to rap with him only a few steps from the lake? You can get the tickets here.

And if romanticism marks you, do you know what’s the most romantic event you could join at Christmas? A simple walk in Torbole. Here the warm and captivating lights will make you forget the December cold and the Christmas atmosphere will warm you up in a long-lasting embrace!

Among the manifold events that characterise Christmas on Garda Trentino, I choose to be touched by a sunset, the ones only this place is able to hold out; the real Christmas splendour is, once again, our beloved lake!
