Forst Christmas forest
Tenth edition for the FORST Beer Christmas Forest
From 22.11.2023 to 07.01.2024, the Forst Christmas Forest will once again be a guest at the FORST Bier headquarters in Lagundo (BZ) with many new products. An event that has now become a permanent fixture, which is associated with tradition, passion and the cozy atmosphere of Advent and this year reaches the important milestone of its tenth edition.
Over the years, the magical Forst Christmas Forest has become a popular destination for the most contemplative time of the year. This year marks the tenth edition of the fairytale Christmas world. Authentic moments, warm hospitality, blazing fireplaces, the impressive “FORST Barn” with the large solidarity exhibition “South Tyrol. Human Territory” and a special farmers’ market with agricultural and artisan products, magical Christmas huts, a sheepfold, a nativity scene exhibition and many other exciting offers await young and old on the FORST Beer site.
At the entrance, visitors are greeted by Forst’s peace bell with its impressive design and lovely sound. It is intended to carry a message of peace and charity into the world. Every year, FORST combines the Christmas season with charitable initiatives.
To mark the 10th anniversary, the solidarity initiative “Südtirol. Human Territory” for the benefit of “Südtirol hilft” – the “Rural Solidarity Fund”. The South Tyrolean women who live and cultivate rural traditions were portrayed by the well-known photographer Paul Croes and can be admired in unique exhibitions, in the magnificent “FORST barn” in the Forster Christmas forest, in a selection of renowned South Tyrolean hotels and in FORST restaurants throughout the country. Thanks to the associated charity raffle, this year you can do good with a ticket for just 1 euro.
“Christmas is a time of giving and love in search of the light. In this sense, the solidarity initiative ‘Südtirol. Human land’. We share the same values with these strong and valuable women. Values of respect, passion and rootedness in our origins. The well-being of the country and its people is a top priority for both of us and this solidarity initiative supports people in need,” emphasizes Cellina von Mannstein, the fifth generation of FORST Bier.
A varied entertainment program with magical characters from the Christmas world such as St. Nicholas and Krampus, “Burggrofn Tuifl”, ice princesses, Santa Claus and “Knecht Ruprecht”, chimney sweeps, the Epiphany couple and the Three Wise Men attracts young and old to the lovingly decorated Christmas world.
In this unique setting, the FORST beer specialties, above all the FORST Christmas beer, can be enjoyed with delicious food. The FORST Christmas beer in the high-quality 2-liter glass bottle is celebrating a special anniversary this year. The decoration of the 20th limited edition rings in the Christmas season in a particularly splendid way and conveys the Christmas message and the commitment to the art of brewing.
South Tyrolean cuisine is served in the historic Sixtus-FORST hall and in the warm-up area of the warm-up tents with rustic catering, the popular hut and the cake house next to the Forst ice rink. The lovingly decorated Christmas huts and the FORST pavilion invite you to linger in a cozy atmosphere with food and drink. The Christmas forest also includes selected sales stands and the FORST store with lots of gift ideas. Here, visitors can browse through unique handicrafts, products and beer specialties from the FORST world.
In addition to the Forst Christmas Forest, the FORST Schlosswirt with the award-winning Luisl Stube restaurant and the FORST Bräustüberl invite you to enjoy unique culinary experiences.
