Places to watch and enjoy the water in Brixen

100% natural and closer than you think. The two springs which supply Brixen with fresh water are both within walking distance of the old town. Brixen is surrounded by countless natural beauty spots and, as you explore the breathtaking scenery, there are plenty of ways to get up close and personal with Brixen’s water. Just imagine the feeling of fresh water flowing over your hands on a warm summer’s day, the bubbling sound of water trickling from a fountain into your water bottle or the refreshing sensation of finally taking off your walking boots after a long hike and slowly dipping your feet into a cool mountain stream. Brixen and its surrounding area are home to around 48 drinking fountains, many of which have witnessed centuries of history.

So take the plunge and make the most of Brixen’s most precious resource.
