The diverse surroundings of Brixen provide everything that the active holidaymaker could desire - in summer and in winter, the South Tyrol holds a multitude of leisure activities.
The warmer months of the year are full of beneficial activities, like hiking, mountain biking, climbing or leisurely walks through Neustift. Visit one of the excellent South Tyrolean museums or get some cultural nourishment for the soul on an interesting city tour.
When the winter season spreads its frosty fingers across the country, the South Tyrol beckons visitors to enjoy adventure-packed skiing holidays: exciting descents abound in the ski resorts, magical snowshoe hikes or demanding crosscountry routes offer something for every kind of snow lover. Children are catered for as well, of course, with dashing tobogganing slopes or iceskating rinks galore.
Over the Christmas period, the scent of cinnamon and spices wafts over the Brixen old town: the annual South Tyrolean "Christkindl" markets tempt visitors to partake in a warming glass of Glühwein and try out a variety of tasty seasonal treats.
