Who doesn't like this time of year? In slippers in front of the fire, baking cookies and browsing the Christmas markets. But not only! Christmas at Lago Maggiore combines tradition with Mediterranean charm.
What makes Christmas on Lake Maggiore so unique? The mild climate. Where else can you ski in the morning and relax on a sundeck by the lake in the afternoon with coffee?
Ascona celebrates Advent with a variety of events: Christmas market, Christmas run, New Year's concert, firework display and Tavolata di Ascona at which people ring in the year together. The cribs also belong to the Ticino culture and are very important. Vira (Gambarogno) and Moghegno (Vallemaggia) are particularly well known for their traditional and unusual interpretations, and during this period they are transformed into little crib villages.
