Visit a city full of liveliness, a city as the heart of the Val Pusteria: Welcome to Brunico.
With around 16,500 inhabitants, Brunico is the fourth largest city in South Tyrol. It is a lively city, in constant movement, at the intersection of the traditions of South Tyrol and extravagant flair and rich in cultural and historical treasures. In 2009, the pearl of the Puster Valley was even voted Italy's most liveable town.
A tour of the city leads first and foremost to Brunico Castle: a mighty medieval bishop's castle with jagged towers and defensive walls from the 13th century, whose history begins after the death of Emperor Frederick II. At that time, she became the administrative seat of the then bishop, Bruno von Kirchberg, who commissioned its expansion. The castle overlooks the Kühbergl on the entire Schlossberg, framed by trees. Here, under peaceful larches, is the resting place of brave soldiers from the First World War.
Enough of the mystical-melancholic and on to the lively part of the city: The impressive gates of the Stadtgasse bring you to the lively, lively Bruneck which accompanies you with its colorful facades, ornate gable constructions, lanterns, old pub signs and paved paths through the historic old town. While you can stroll through the shops and boutiques during the day and relax in the numerous cafés, the Bruneck nightlife is just waiting to open its doors. Colorful aperitifs, theaters, concerts, cinema, wine shops, bars, pubs and clubs are just waiting to greet you loud and humorous. In winter, the hustle and bustle shifts to the nearby Kronplatz ski area, which is taking the hearts of skiers and snowboarders by storm with 105 kilometers of slopes and 32 lifts.
