Bressanone & Sourroundings
Coming from north, were you will find the first vineyards of South Tyrol, you will detect the charming episcopal city of Bressanone in a wide valley at the confluence of the rivers Isarco and Rienza.
The historical town, surrounded by the famous mountain landscapes of the Dolomites, is still a place of peace and quiet despite all the changes it has witnessed over the centuries. It is the ideal place to discover the Tyrolean way of life together with all its customs and traditions.
The old town center is full of avenues and parks which invite the visitor to relax and to idle the hours away. The town is surrounded by vineyards and orchards which yield a rich harvest in autumn.
At every step the town teems with history - Bressanone is a true delight for people fond of art and culture! Discover old alleys and narrow streets, ancient houses, porticos, bridges, churches, the cathedral, the cloister with its gothical frescos and the former imperial palace, which is now diocesan- and chrèche museum.
