In the lovely old city of Brixen, you can see this glorious Cathedral. It’s a mid-18th century Baroque style Cathedral, with origins from the 10th century. We loved the gilded internal decorations. The large fresco ceiling was made by Paul Troger. On a special stone in the floor are candles and flowers to commemorate the Bishop, Wilhelm Eggert, who died... More

Typically baroque and quite interesting. Worth visiting, but certainly not the best dome you can see in Tyrol.

It is a church like any other big churches. Nice paintings on the walls, pretty big building, but it doesn't stand out with anything. If you don't have the time to see it, you won't miss too much ...

The contrast between the side by side churches is really to be appreciated. The Dom is rich whereas the besides standing church is austere and poor.

Brixen is a cute, charming tirol city. It reminded me of being back in southern Germany. The church is in a courtyard and is actually two churches(one is a duomo). It opens onto a wonderful platz with cafes and fountains. It was beautiful in the spring time.

When I saw pictures of the duomo here, I fell in love. Seeing it in person is is even better. The square it is in is very pretty and there is a cool fountain there too. I am glad we went and would go back in a heartbeat. We thought about staying here but there is not much to see... More
