Turn-by-turn directions

From the Herrengarten (Hofgarten) garden adjoining the Bishop's Palace (Hofburg), the seat of the Brixen Diocese, the circular walk leads over Domplatz square to the iron Adlerbrücke bridge. Passing the bridge to the right, the route leads to the Rappanlagen gardens, the green area of town. Named after Franz von Rapp, former Governor of Tyrol, the Rappanlagen were created in 1883 after the disastrous floods wreaked havoc in the town. As a countermeasure, the confluence of the Eisack and Rienz rivers was altered.

From the gardens, proceed to the Widmannbrücke bridge where the Eisack and Rienz rivers meet and follow the left bank of the Eisack south to the Fish Farm/Lido, where there’s a pedestrian bridge. The Lido/Fish Farm recreational area consists of a lagoon, an aviary and a pen with small animals, which is very popular with children.

Return north along the right bank of the Eisack to the Adlerbrücke bridge and the Acquarena adventure pool. From there the walk through the town passes the Altenmarktgasse alley to Großer Graben alley and through the Säbener Tor town gate back to the starting point.
