Discover Brixen / Bressanone in the Eisacktal & surroundings

Let's go! A discovery tour

A quiet place in an active holiday paradise. The Sunnegg is situated in the middle of the Kranebitt vineyards and only a few minutes away from the old town of Bressanone. In the bishop's town you can visit museums, churches and last but not least go shopping. Several walking paths pass next to the house, and are accessible all year round. In winter you can go skiing in the nearby ski area Plose.

Do you need help to plan your holiday? We are at home here and are happy to advise you. Here you can find our tips for a great vacation at the Sunnegg.

Bressanone wine path

The circular path leads across the vineyards of Kranebitt and Novacella to the Augustinian canons' monastery of Novacella to Bressanone and back.

From the Sunnegg towards Novacella (trail 3-15). The way back leads at the southern end of the monastery garden through the vineyard to the Alte Pustertaler Straße. Once you cross this road, head up to Köfererleite alley and follow the 4A marker  through the terraced slopes to the Strasserhof guesthouse. Isarco Valley Wine Trail is marked here and leads through vineyards and woods. You will reach the trail no. 6, which leads downhill to the south over Stufles to Bressanone. From Bressanone you then return to Kranebitt and to Sunnegg, where a glas of house wine will round off your wine experience.
