Brixen enthrals the imagination with its neat alleyways and arcades, the cathedral, the “White Tower”, the Hofburg with its museum of cribs as well as its cloisters, one of the biggest monuments of alpine mural paintings with valuable Alpine frescoes from the 14th to 16th century.

Brixen is the biggest and most important town of the Eisack valley and is regarded as the oldest town of Tyrol. Nestling in the slopes and vineyards and green meadows, Brixen is located in the wide and sunny valley basin overlooked by the Plose, the local mountain.


This town of scarcely 20,000 inhabitants has managed, like almost no other town in South Tyrol, to preserve its impressive style and cosy atmosphere with cultural treasures, romantic alleyways, lively arcades, small shops with South Tyrolean trade and Italian fashion, as well as cosy cafes and historical buildings.
