Water - our most precious resource.

The Brixen Water Light Festival ©powered by Durst, 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 © powered by Durst stands as certified "Green Event" in South Tyrol as a venue 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.

for visitors of the festival

During the Water Light Festival, Eurac Research is conducting a visitor and resident survey on behalf of the Brixen Tourism with a focus on sustainability. Sustainability is based on the three dimensions of economy, ecology and social issues and their mutual balance. With this short questionnaire we would like to collect your feedback in order to improve the Water Light Festival in a sustainable way. Answering the questions takes about 3 minutes.
