Terribly underrated, the frescoes alone should have taken a day of wonderment. The piazza outside is also a great place to chill.

We drove to Bressanone (Brixen) as a side trip from Bolzano one afternoon, and found the Duomo di Bressanone to be well worth the drive. The town itself is interesting and seems to be nicely persevered... an enjoyable place to window shop and stroll around, but the Duomo was an unexpected surprise. The ceiling height, frescos and gold leaf trim... More

The Dom and the square are probably the main attraction in the old town of Bressanone. The interior of the Dom is very richly decorated and can be easily visited. Take a look at the cloister and its paintings. Don't miss the representation of the elephant, painted according to the stories told by the first travelleres who went to Asia.

Take some time to quietly go through the cloisters and admire the frescoes. The dom itself is spectacular and te piazza is great for watching the locals.

Always worth to visit: Phantastic frescos in the cloister! Don't know what to say more - when you are in Brixen, it's a must.

Those with a hearty appetite might be able to stand up to the challenge of the so called "elephant's dish", served at the restaurant in the historic Inn Elephant. This one-course dish contains many Tyrollean specialities, making it difficult not to finish it. Later we ambled over to Lodenwirt for after lunch shopping. But let's start at the begining. Just...

This place is very nice and well worth the visit. You will go in anyway as its free and part of the main market square that you visit anyway as part of your exploration. It's not over the top as some Duomo's are but very beautiful all the same. The facade is basic and renovated an seems to lack some... More

We only visited the Duomo for a short moment and had the luck to hear te organ playing. The church is charming and had lots of decorations.

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
