Winter in Brixen

A holiday in Brixen is a wonderful experience all year round. The region is especially enchanted during the Advent and Christmas season. If you spend your winter holiday in Brixen, you have a variety of sporting and cultural activities open to you.

Christmas market

The Christmas market in Brixen is famous for its atmosphere far beyond the town's borders. The beautiful backdrop directly at the imposing baroque cathedral and the festively illuminated houses around the Hofburg square creates a magical atmosphere. Year after year, visitors and locals enjoy the Christmas market in Brixen.

Skiing, Snowboarden & Cross-Country Skiing

Anyone who is out and about in South Tyrol in winter will find excellent opportunities for skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing.

The fun starts right on the Plose, Brixen's local mountain. There are other ski areas nearby that are suitable for day trips. Here you will find endless possibilities for skiing. Cross-country skiers will also find pleasure there.

There is also a lot to experience for toboggan fans. There are several fantastic natural toboggan runs available in Brixen and the surrounding area.

A special highlight is the 12 km long “Rudi Run” route, which leads from the Plose mountain station down to the valley - maximum fun is guaranteed for everyone! The longest floodlit toboggan run in Italy, the Rosskopf toboggan run in Sterzing, is very close to Brixen.



But not only skiers and tobogganists will find their pleasure with us in winter, but also culture lovers and hikers.
