Section A2 - From Bruneck/Brunico to Brixen/Bressanone

It's time to say goodbye to Pustertal Valley, following the peaceful splashing of the Rienz river, back past Schloss Ehrenburg castle and the ruins of Mühlbacher Klause fortress in order to embark on the route to Brixen/Bressanone, passing the mighty Franzensfeste fortress again. Going past Vahrner See lake, an idyllic bathing biotope perfect for relaxing by, the cathedral town of Brixen/Bressanone is soon reached.

Bruneck/Brunico is a lively town with a range of bars and restaurants and the mood there is cheerful and easy-going. The local landmark mountain is Kronplatz, the best-known ski resort in South Tyrol.

The cathedral town of Brixen/Bressanone dates back to 901 and is one of the most ancient towns in Tyrol. There are lots of interesting sights, such as the 'Weisser Turm' (White Tower), the cathedral and the Bishop's Palace, which was the episcopal see of the diocese of Brixen/Bressanone until 1973.
