Holiday in the Eisacktal: the old town of Brixen

Coming from the North a wide hollow opens in the center of the medieval town of Brixen. The city has to offer a variety of cultural events and an incomparable medieval charm. Here the rivers Eisack and Rienz meet and art, culture and enjoyment of life merge into one. Narrow lanes, magnificent houses and numerous churches testify to the long history of Brixen. The vineyards, avenues and parks invite you to linger. Small traditional shops, narrow streets and beautiful arbors shape the face of the pedestrian zone in the city center.
