Hofburg Brixen

When in Bressanone, you should definitely visit the Diocesan Museum in the Hofburg Brixen. The courtyard of the Hofburg is one of the most atmospheric castle courts in South Tyrol. The Diocesan Museum houses in 70 showrooms the art collection with valuable sculptures and panel paintings from the Middle Ages to modern art, the Brixen cathedral treasury, the imperial tract with majolica stoves, historic furniture and Viennese porcelain, the bishop’s wing and a baroque chapel. The collection of medieval sculptures is the most comprehensive one in all of South Tyrol! All on a total exhibition area of 6600m². On the ground floor of the Hofburg Brixen visitors can discover the annual nativity scene, consisting of about 5,000 figurines, which Prince-Bishop Karl Franz von Lodron commissioned for his living quarters in the Hofburg. The nativity set is complemented by nativity scenes from Bressanone, Tyrol, Naples and Sicily.
