Founded in 901, Brixen is the oldest town in Tyrol. For centuries, the bishopric of Brixen was an influential seat of prince-bishops who were German imperial princes from 1027 to 1803. Several bishops from Brixen have been elected pope throughout history. Today, Brixen shares the seat of the bishop with the provincial capital Bolzano (diocese of Brixen – Bozen).
