Discover a summer full of adventure and opportunities!
If you are looking for peace and relaxation while hiking, you will find a vast number of options on the Kronplatz and around, ranging from gentle strolls up to challenging expeditions. Some of them start right from your doorstep (o.k., some meters away), leading up on the summit of the Kronplatz as part of a large networks of trails. But also have a look in our neighbourhood: Enjoy a visit to the famous and romantic Lake Lago di Braies, the largest natural lake in the Dolomites or the Ahrn valley with its imposing 3,000 metre peaks or the emblem of the Dolomites, the Three Peaks.

In the realm of the Dolomites, climbing has its own long history, be it by fixed rope routes, be it alpine climbing. Your kids will surely have a fun day out at the recently erected via ferrata for children. Adult guests will find their all time favorites in this survey for fixed rope routes.
Not adventurous enough? The Kronplatz is simply ideal to start your aerial career: marvel at the mountainscape from quite a different angle while having the time of your life on a tandem flight.
The Kronplatz is also an an exciting place to explore for mountain bikers. Not without reason, the Kronplatz is set to host the Kronplatz King Marathons. If you prefer a rather relaxed approach, though, find your (mountain) bike inspiration here.
On hot days we recommend an aqua adventure in the Ahrn valley. Rafting on the Ahr river is a fun way to cool down!
Maybe you find it is time to improve your golf handicap? The course of the Golfclub Pustertal consists of 9-holes – Par 34 with 2.800 m - and the stunning view, of course!
There are names well known even to those who do not ski: Sellaronda, Alta Badia or Kronplatz. All those famous ski resorts are part of the world wide largest ski alliance - Dolomiti Super Ski. The Kronplatz with its legendary 119 kilometres of slopes at all levels certainly is the most popular and most diverse ski resort in our valley, hosting the World Cup giant slalom on the ERTA slope.
However, the Kronplatz is not the only ski resort of excellence in the Val Pusteria. Do not miss to test the slopes in the Ahrn valley -ski resort Speikboden- or in the ski resort Three Peaks. It will be worth a visit!
If you shy away from the whirl of alpine skiing and après ski, ski touring or cross-country skiing might be the ultimate idea for you. There is no better way to immerse in the sublime winter mountain scenery. Find more information about cross-country skiing in our valley here.
The Ahrn valley and the three neighbouring national parks in particular are each pure ski touring meccas, with countless route options. The same goes for snowshoeing trips which became quite popular the recent years. In case you will not take a professional mountain guide with you, please check the weather conditions and dangers of avalanches carefully before starting the tour.
Those who want to enjoy their own private winter tale will surely appreciate the numerous enjoyable winter walks or go back to childhood pleasures while sledding. Try some of the various sled runs in our vicinity - some of them are even illuminated.
Winter in Val Pusteria is no winter without the romantic and atmospheric christmas markets, where you can discover rare craft products and traditional tidbits.
The Bruneck christmas market is particularly worth a visit with the cozy scenery of its old town - not far away from your appartment!
Of course, our recommendation are not exhaustive.
At any time of year numerous museums are worth a visit. Did you know that the world famous alpinist Reinhold Messner has erected even two museums nearby that you should not miss? Bruneck Castle hosts a permanent exhibition about the mountain people of the world and their culture. The recently erected museum on the summit of the Kronplatz makes alpine history accessible to the visitor who find his way to the bold architecture of late star architect Zaha Hadid.
If you feel like spending some time in a true fairy tale castle, visit Taufers Castle in the Ahrn valley that impressively guards the entrance to that valley.
