Section B3 - From Bozen/Bolzano to Brixen/Bressanone

In this wonderful section, we leave the province capital of Bozen/Bolzano under the watchful eye of Burg Karneid fortress to then pass by Trostburg fortress at Waidbruck on the way to Klausen/Chiusa. 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. There are just 10 km of the relaxing Valle Isarco Cycle Path before we arrive at the historical cathedral town of Brixen/Bressanone.

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.

The splendid 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.
