Bruneck/Brunico in the South Tyrolean Puster Valley
At the intersection of all things Alpine and Mediterranean...
The town of Bruneck/Brunico was build during the 13th Century at the shores of the Rienz river. It is situated at an altitude of 840 metres above sea level. Bruneck/Brunico is a green town with charming lanes, well-cared for shops and offers lots of flair. Only a short while ago, Castle Bruneck/Brunico became the home of the fifth Messner Mountain Museum.
It is worth visiting the old city gates, the lanes with wonderful house facades and frescoes, the birthplace of Michael Pacher, as well as the military cemetery.
Bruneck/Brunico is the economic and cultural centre of the Puster Valley.
The valley is the most easterly in South Tyrol and reaches from Brixen/Bressanone to the borders to East Tyrol. The ‘green valley‘
as the Puster Valley is called, stretches from 700 to around 1,600 metres in altitude. A typical sight in the Lower Puster Valley is the lush-green meadows and dark forests. The Upper Puster Valley presents itself with characteristic mountain summits such as the Sexten and Lienz Dolomites. The Drei Zinnen (Three Towers) is the centre of attention in the area. Nature lovers and mountaineers will be exhilarated. Excursions into the surrounding area
