Stay in a house that dates from 1450. Yet is absolutely modern.

Experience centuries of history

Since its restoration, the Fink family’s townhouse now has nine suites. In the course of the works the original stone walls and vaults were carefully restored to their original state and extended according to the principles of naturalness and sustainability. The suites embody the ancient monastic atmosphere of this centuries-old building.

Frequently asked questions


Old wooden doors and stone walls, round arches and oriels adorned with carefully restored ceiling frescoes characterise the atmosphere in the suites. The elegance and simplicity of the furniture and fittings harmonise with the aura of the historic rooms.

The charm of ancient structures

The interior design aims to underline the value and effect of the old walls and round arches of the townhouse and thus bring its original character back to life. Board and stone floorings as well as furniture of old wood harmonise with cosy fabrics and warm colours.

The aesthetics of restraint

The carefully selected furniture, lamps and fittings in the suites, most of which were designed in-house, combine a purist design with the demand for high-quality materials. The restrained aesthetics draw attention to the effect of the rooms themselves.

A spa under old vaults

An old wooden door leads to the spa area, which extends towards the inner courtyard: a place of tranquillity in the midst of the city. Surrounded by dense greenery, a Roman bath with cold and warm water pools sits naturally between the walls of the inner courtyard. The inner rooms with their wooden sauna, steam bath made of stone and the relaxation area under historic vaults together create a private retreat. Herbs from Brixen’s monastery gardens fill every room with their fragrance as they are added to the heat.

The taste of nature

The cuisine here is characterised by innovatively interpreted dishes based upon historical recipes. Chef Florian Fink follows a philosophy of simplicity and naturalness: the fresh ingredients – mainly vegetables, fruit and herbs – for his seasonally changing menu come from the gardens of Brixen’s monasteries and organic farms. We are happy to take account of the wishes of suite guests when taking reservations.

More about the restaurant

An old monastery town with a glorious past

Brixen is one of the oldest towns in South Tyrol, where the history and culture of Tyrol merge with a Mediterranean way of life. The centuries-long reign of the prince-bishops has left its mark on the townscape. The cathedral square, churches and large monastery complexes show influences of the Baroque and Renaissance periods, while the medieval old town of this bishops’ see is characterised by arcades and alleyways with façades that date from bygone centuries.

Brixen’s old town

Brixen’s historic town centre combines family-run traditional shops, bars and restaurants with a wide range of artistic and cultural activities. The popular farmers’ market in the centre offers a wide selection of fresh local produce.

Exercise and nature in all its forms

Surrounded by the Plose, its densely forested local mountain, the nearby Dolomites and the sunny peaks of the Sarntal Alps to the west, the Brixen valley basin is the starting point for numerous activities, from the easy to the challenging: climbing, mountaineering, paragliding, downhill skiing – as well as bike tours and walks through rugged valleys or green vineyards and orchards.

Culture and history

Brixen’s historical importance as the gateway to the south is marked by a variety of monasteries, castles and villages, both in the immediate vicinity and throughout the entire Eisack Valley. For reasons of security, important buildings and fortresses were erected centuries ago on the hills overlooking the valley. Of particular note are the Säben Monastery and the Trostburg Castle, enthroned upon high cliffs.
