Section A3 - From Brixen/Bressanone to Bozen/Bolzano

We leave the historical town of Brixen/Bressanone on this section in order to approach the artists's town of Klausen/Chiusa following the Eisack River. Under the protection of the secular fortress of Branzoll and the Christian cloister of Säben, we cross the picturesque little town and enjoy its unique atmosphere. The route continues along the valley basin, past Waidbruck and Trostburg fortress until, under the watchful eye of Burg Karneid fortress, we reach the province capital of Bozen/Bolzano.

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.

A laid-back splashing of streams and a lively, vivacious mix of the German and Italian languages as well as Tyrolean and Italian culture is what sets the wonderful capital of South Tyrol apart from other places.
