Brixen is the oldest city in Tyrol and the third-biggest city in South Tyrol with just over 20,000 inhabitants. The city is a great adventure for visitors during any season of the year: City & Mountain – Culture & Active.
The Medieval city convinces with 300 days of sun, a Mediterranean climate and romantic arbours and arcades, where expert shopkeepers impress you with Italian fashion in family-operated boutiques and shops, South Tyrolean specialties and products of excellent quality. Brixen is highly appreciated as a gourmet region, and culture lovers will discover many treasures in the city.
The main mountain Plose with an altitude of 2500 m is ideal for being active: in summer for hiking and cycling, in winter you can try the longest downhill slope in South Tyrol. You will enjoy a unique view of the Geisler Peaks – a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site the whole time.
Nature surrounding Brixen is truly varied with vineyards, chestnut groves, dense spruce forests and rough Dolomite peaks.
