  • Looks outward like a Palace Castle, former seat of the Prince-Bishop and aqncora said moated Imperial Palace with water and overlooking a broad piazza that reconnects to the Cathedral square with flower beds and gardens of violets. On the left of the entrance there is a monumental Baroque courtyard with a large ticket front arcades decorated by statues at the Center last November 2016 was installed a stone fountain with jets of water drinkable work of South Tyrolean sculptor Franz sessantanovenne Kehrer.Al ground floor is the collection of Nativity scenes, but also scenes of Jesus ' public life until the passion the crib more refined face care and detail is to Joseph Sammartino sculptor neo-classical and mysterious of the veiled Christ on the upper floors of sacred mediaeval wooden sculpture, paintings like the portrait of maternal gaze, a great Book of Austria Concert Hall, large porcelain stoves and contemporary art exhibitions of artists from South Tyrol or Germans. monthly is proclaimed the artwork of the month. A curiosity is to not notice a heavy presence of supervision, in that video surveillance is very valid. I mean a peaceful oasis for tourists rushed, but also a blast from the past for those unfamiliar with the vicissitudes of this Isarco and the ancient Säben the ancient name of Brixen in Rezia romana at the confluence of two rivers that feed the Adige to Verona. After the Museum enjoy this nature and mountains and forests and buy handicrafts in legno.che remember how you saw medieval craftsmen exposed in the beautiful Hofburg, as next visit I recommend the White Tower, the Pharmacy Museum and the Cathedral

  • Ignored during many visits to Brixen and recently discovered a real treasure. For those interested in art history a treasure trove of rarities. On Thursday at 14: 00 there's a German-language tour. 1 hour is indeed kanppe, but is a rapid and very entertaining overview - recommended!

  • The museum visit was enjoyable. Interesting collection of Nativity scenes, some of them very original; Some exhibits were a little high for children. On the upper floors, an interesting collection of paintings and objects that highlight the power of bishops-Church Princes of Bressanone. At the ticket office a few bumps with the lady who couldn't speak Italian but with the help of his colleague we managed to understand each other. Also interesting is the visit to the exhibition Soliman, the wooden elephant in a hemp field on the side of the Museum.

  • Medieval Hofburg. Especially the Nativity scene Museum is uniquely rich and beautifully designed. Highly recommended.

  • Ecclesiastical art collection, especially from the Baroque period but without pieces of exceptional prestige.
