MERANO CHRISTMAS MARKET:The most famous and loved Mercatino di Natale (Christmas Street Market) in Italy invites participants to enjoy the magic of a traditional mid-European Christmas, with South Tyrolean gastronomic specialties and Christmas carols performed by choirs in folkloristic costumes. In several wooden little houses, decorated according to the tradition, visitors can find the products of Alto Adige: fantastic decorations for the Christmas tree, handcrafted wooden objects, glassware and ceramics, but also gastronomic specialties, such as speck, strudel and Christmas mulled wine. Also the “Feuerzangenbowle”, in English, “the fire tong punch” is a must this year, like every year.
ICEMAN: Over 5000 years ago, a man climbed up to the icy heights of the Schnalstal glacier and died. He was found by accident on September 19th, 1991 with his clothes and equipment, mummified and frozen. He was one of the most extraordinary discoveries of our Century, an archaeological sensation and a unique snapshot of a Copper Age man. On just an ordinary hike in the Ötzal Alps: two hikers discover a true ice mummy. The iceman, or “Ötzi”, as he is nicknamed, died approximately 5200 years ago. For several years, highly specialized research teams examined the mummy and the articles found with it. He turned into a mummy almost immediately by the freezing weather conditions that turned him into the Ice Man.
