How to reach Bressanone

Bressanone can be reached easily and comfortably by train. The station is located just a few minutes’ walk from the old town. And if you have heavy luggage, you can simply hop on a bus from the station to the town and its surrounding villages.

The best route to take is via the A22 Brenner motorway (take the Brixen/Bressanone exit if you are travelling from the north, and the Klausen/Chiusa exit from the south). From here, the roads are well signposted so it should be easy to find your accommodation.

There is plenty of parking in the town, including free and charged car parks.

The closest airports are Innsbruck to the north, Venice, Verona and Bolzano to the south. Additional airports in the area include: Munich, Treviso, Bergamo and Milan. Bolzano regional airport (BZO – South Tyrol) is located on the southern outskirts of the capital city, and direct flights to Bozen are currently available from Rome, Berlin or Düsseldorf.
