The South Tyrolean town is more than 1,000 years old; it is the oldest in South Tyrol and was often a stopover for emperors on their travel and became a lavish bishop’s seat. Visit the Dome of Bressanone, the unique square in front of the cathedral, the protected large-scale historic centre from the Middle Ages, walk along the lanes decorated with merlons and make a shopping tour in the arcades of Bressanone, adorned with picturesque and colourful facades.
But in those day before Xmas the main attraction is the romantic Christmas Market in front of the Dome of Bressanone, casting a spell over thousands of visitors. You can buy beautiful local craft as Xmas present while treating yourself with many delicacies, warm up with a hot mug of elder juice or mulledwine.
