Brixen-Bressanone is a touristic town therefore, we strongly advise you to make your hotel booking well in advance.
Brixen-Bressanone, a bishop’s residence, is distinguished by its mediaeval Gothic architecture. Here you can still breathe the atmosphere of an academic, theological tradition that has lasted for centuries. Like Bozen-Bolzano, Brixen-Bressanone has always been a crossroads of various cultures.
Since the end of the World War II Brixen-Bressanone has experienced a spurt in economic growth while consolidating its artistic and cultural vocation. Visitors will find a comfortably-sized town of about 20,713 inhabitants.
The mediaeval alleys and the wealth of historical references are an ideal starting point for excursions into the countryside and for practising a whole variety of sports and leisure activities. Leaving directly from the town centre students can set off on their bikes or on foot for excursions into the surrounding hills and mountains; a good example of a fine place for walking and biking is the Plose mountain, easily accessible by public transport, and which in the winter months becomes a favourite area for skiing and snowboarding.
