The Forster Christmas forest at the Braugarten FORST



Christmas is always a very special time for the special beer brewery FORST and the Braugarten. The “Forster Christmas Forest” was launched in 2013  by Cellina von Mannstein and has evolved into a true highlight at Christmas time in Merano.
More than 100 Christmas trees are placed in the Braugarten, braziers and torches decorate the surroundings of the heated Christmas huts in which you can eat and drink in good company to celebrate the festive season. From the known kitchen of the Braugarten comes Christmas specialties , wich are served together with the well known, classic  Braugarten Foods, to which  freshly tapped beer, the traditional Christmas Beer and the new, surprising Glühbier is served.

All foods and drinks can be enjoyed in the cozy Christmas huts, but also on the great  tables around the open, well heated bar area.

Celebrate and feel good! A part of the incomes of the Forster Christmas Forest will be donated to the “Südtirol hilft” Carity Organization.
