Bressanone is the third largest town in South-Tyrol and is known in history mainly for having been the capital of the ecclesiastical principality for a long period of time.

Walking in Bressanone

By walking around town you will be amazed by all the impressions: 
bourgeois residential buildings with lavishly decorated Renaissance-facades and gothic churches and buildings will reveal the different artistical influences this town has gone through.

Things to do in Bressanone:

  • We recommend a visit to the nearby Abbey of Novacella, dating back to 1142. Formerly this monastery was built by the bishop of Bressanone as a refuge for pilgrims on their way to Rome.
  • In mediaeval times it was turned into one of the most important studying centres of Tyrol and nowadays it is still run by the Augustinian Friars.
  • Some of the most important artistic streams are to be admired. Romanic elements flow elegantly into the Gothic touches, while the Baroque and Rococo styles elegantly decorate the outside facades.
