Brunico, the picturesque little town on the Rienza, has always been an economic and cultural centre in the Val Pusteria Valley. The Ursuline Convent, where girls were already schooled since the 18th century, is an essential part of its historic core. Upon the hill, where the old town lies in a semicircular shape, stands a magnificent 13th-century castle that majestically rises towards the sky. The historic walls and quiet spots like the Vicolo Posteriore or the military cemetery lend the city on the Rienza a magical charm. And if you are looking for something else, look no further than the old part of town or the Corso am Graben, a bustling promenade with markets, cafés and shops. Lastly, modern architecture gives the cityscape a new face but still preserves its history.
