Holidaying in Brixen

Where nature and culture come together

Brixen – a town of culture: As you stroll through the oldest town in Tyrol, past centuries-old buildings, you can experience history first hand. The combination of modern living and traditions is reflected not only in the architecture, but also in the locals’ personality and ways of life. Brixen’s cultural scene is both creative and exciting. With unique exhibitions and cultural tours.

Brixen – a warm welcome awaits: As you sip on a glass of white wine from locally grown grapes, you can’t help but fall in love with the warm hospitality on offer in South Tyrol. There’s no better way to get to know South Tyrolean traditions, customs and secret recipes than over a good glass of Sylvaner and a hearty plate of regional food served up in a cosy atmosphere.

Brixen - naturally. Explore the unique South Tyrolean landscape around Brixen while hiking, biking, sledding or skiing. 427 km of hiking trails lead from the city to the mountains. Ski down the sun-drenched slopes of the Plose on perfectly groomed slopes while keeping the imposing mountains of the Dolomites in view. With almost 2,000 hours of sunshine a year, your vacation in Brixen and its surroundings will be an unforgettable experience in every season.
