Art, culture and history have made Brixen an important place to be. The South Tyrolean town is more than 1,000 years old; it is the oldest in South Tyrol and was often a stopover for emperors on their travel and became a lavish bishop’s seat. Today, it offers an interesting connection between joie-de-vivre and reflection. The unique square in front of the cathedral, the protected large-scale historic centre from the Middle Ages, the porticos and lanes decorated with merlons, museum treasures, craft tradition and archaeological exhibits invite you to discover and enjoy modern events, cabarets and concerts. This is what makes Brixen twice as varied.
