At the Christmas markets in Trentino, you typically see Krampuses wandering around with their hairy coats, their horrible faces with long tongues and their stinking goat smell.

Legend has it that in ancient times, during times of famine, some children from small mountain villages covered themselves with dirty clothes, skins and horns of dead animals in order to remain undetected and thus steal from the inhabitants of neighbouring villages. One day, however, they were joined by a real demon, recognisable by his goat hooves. The frightened children ran to Bishop Nicholas, who managed to exorcise the terrible creature and make it his servant. Since then, St. Nicholas has been wandering around with the demonic creatures who terrorise the children, but whom the saint calms down by giving them sweets.


If you have been good children, you have nothing to fear! Many surprises await you at the Christmas markets in Cavalese in Val di Fiemme, Trentino-Alto Adige!
