Water - our most precious resource.

The Brixen Water Light Festival © aims to raise awareness of this issue beyond regional borders.
The mission is to spread a respectful awareness of nature and sustainable use of water resources, to strengthen the cultural link with local tradition and history, and to raise awareness among guests and the public about environmentally friendly consumer behaviour.

The Brixen Water Light Festival stands as a venue in South Tyrol for sustainability. The focus is on the use of energy from renewable sources, environmentally friendly products and digital advertising campaigns. It would be nice if you too could help to make our festival a more ecologically compatible event, e.g. by making your journey to us more environmentally friendly.
