Culture and events in wintertime
Tour de Ski .... in Toblach
There are plenty of highlight events in Dobbiaco, which you should not miss during your winter holiday in South Tyrol.
One of the special events is the cross-country World Cup. Every year one or more stages of the Tour de Ski take place in the ski-stadium “Nordic Arena”. Experience the exciting competitions of the cross-country elite skiers!
Especially popular among amateur skiers are the two internationally renowned public cross-country skiing events: the traditional Granfondo Dobbiaco-Cortina and the Pustertaler Ski-Marathon.
Take the opportunity and touch the sky in the Dobbiaco Balloon Festival. The international hot air balloon meeting is scheduled every year from the beginning to the middle of January. Enjoy the magic and fun of the Dobbiaco Balloon Festival!
Not to be forgotten is the traditional procession from Santa Claus with a devil show (“Krampus”) around 5th and 6th December. About 400 Krampus transform the village into a big celebration of the Advent. An eerie-frightening experience that should not be missed!
