Brixen/Bressanone is architecture, art and culture
Those who would like to make use of all sights and of the entire offering of art and culture should stay longer! The diversity in Brixen/Bressanone and surroundings is that ample. The church historical importance of Brixen/Bressanone is getting obvious in the cathedral precinct due to the impressive double steeples, the landmark of Brixen/Bressanone, the unique cloistered courtyard, the parish church and the 72 m tall gothic white tower.
The Augustinian monastery Neustift (it’s a must to try the homegrown wine!) and the impressive cloister Säben/Abbazia di Novacella are absolutely worth seeing.
Also a visit to the old town of Brixen/Bressanone should be part of the vacation. Brixen/Bressanone acquired renown as a museum-city. The Diocesan museum in the Hofburg Palace (the garden of the Hofburg Palace should be visited right after) and the Pharmacy museum are always worth a visit. Brixen/Bressanone frequently offers exhibitions of known and new local artists or artists from abroad.
The offering of the initiative music and church is unique. In addition, there are a big amount of concerts and other musical events at all times.
The historic Fortress Franzensfeste/Fortezza is somewhat special and has been opened to the public only for a few years. Lately, exhibitions and concerts are taking place in the fortress.
