    Add to calendar 2018-12-09 2018-12-10 Europe/Rome Christmas in Val d'Ultimo Special products in a particular place. The new Culten Museum offers the ideal setting for this extraordinary market that deliberately goes out of the classic Christmas markets of the province. Among the walls of the old rural farmhouse of the sixteenth century, the Zuanochten farmer's showrooms present their Christmas products, while outside the gastronomic booths delight visitors with many typical specialties. With their almost mystical atmosphere, the underground halls of the Museum want to give space to gathering and reflection. Here you take the time to gather around the crackling fire, listen to a Christmas story, or talk about the Christmas customs of a time. Musical accompaniment is entrusted to the Alphornbläser bands of Proves and Turmbläser Ulten, to the folk music band of Val d'Ultimo and to Tobi with his accordion. Ultimo - Ulten
