The municipality of Bressanone stretches from the episcopal city in the valley floor up to the foot of the Plose and Odle D’Eores mountains.
The municipal city of Bressanone is, in the true sense of the word, located in the heart of South Tyrol and is immersed in a wide valley basin. Beside the city it also comprises the villages nestling on the slopes of Monte Ponente as well as S. Andrea on the slopes of the Plose and the localities of Albes, Elvas, Millan, Eores and Sarnes.
The mild climate of the Valle Isarco valley makes vineyards and fruit orchards flourish in this area. In fact, Bressanone fascinates twice: on the one hand the city has got a varied cultural programme to offer, on the other hand the surrounding villages as well as the local mountain of the Plose make you escape the city life and take you to another world, the world of nature, ideal for taking a break and enjoying relaxation.
A Toerggele hike along the sunny slopes of the Monte Ponente and subsequent stop in one of the typical taverns called Buschenschank, a drink at the event Summer Emotions in the historic town of Bressanone, a shopping evening, a winter walk on the Plose and a visit of the Christmas Market, the episcopal city and the surrounding villages have much to offer in every season and for every taste.
