Bressanone is among the oldest town in the Tyrol.
A visit to the Baroque cathedral and its Gothic cloister is a must, while the medieval arch-lined walkways typical of the region are home to stylish bars and cafes.
Among the other highlights are the Imperial Courtyard and Garden and - just outside the town itself - Neustift Monastery, with its well-stocked wine cellar.
