Twice as enchanting
Monastries, churches and chapels in and around Brixen
Its former function as a Middle Age bishop’s town still characterises Brixen today. In particular the religious buildings, which are found liberally placed around the town, reflect this fact. The bishop’s realm in the town centre with the cathedral and parish church show the power the church had in the past. The canon’s Neustift monastry represents the spiritual sovereignty of the religious culture during the Middle Ages. The parish churches and farming churches are treasure chests of a pious folk culture, which still endures today. The churches and cloister in and around Brixen give great insight into the heart of the population. All of this makes Brixen twice as lovely!
