High above civilisation

Summit hikes and sweeping views

Whether you’re looking for secluded mountain valleys or a vibrant mountain resort, there is something to suit every taste in the mountains around Brixen. The popular Plose resort is just a few minutes from the town. And the gondola lift takes you up to 2,000 metres above sea level in no time at all. From here, you’re spoilt for choice with plenty of hiking paths and summits to climb. The panoramic view of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site is simply breathtaking! If you like things a little quieter, the mountains on the other side of Brixen are also home to some absolutely stunning scenery and isolated summits. Here you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of nature to your heart’s content.
